Hope all is well out there with you all in Internet Land
I’m writing this now to speak to you about 2 things:
One being my recent decision to move on from Micro 4/3rd Photography, and the other my experience with the Fuji XPro-1
Yes I’ve moved on from the Panasonic Lumix GX7 and the system i had put together
Hello Ladies and Gents
Hope all is well!
As of late, I’ve been doing lots of shooting with Ilford HP5 (bulk rolled) with HC-110 developer.
I use in both 35mm and 120 formats, the 120 is amazing especially when pushed with Rodinal or Pyro PMK
I really do enjoy that film and it works great for me, and as a matter of fact..when I really think about it, it’s possible Ilford HP5 is my favorite B&W film ever!
Actually, I think Ilford as a company may be making most of my favorite film products
Not a surprise since they’ve been dedicated to top notch film stuff for decades
So back to the subject..
My love for HP5 lead to me wanting to try out its brother, Delta 400, who i’ve heard great things about and have minimal experience with honestly..
For a long while I never gave it a second thought..
Never thought about reading all of the reviews..or taking it as a serious medium
Micro Four Thirds technology seemed ok and I know a lot of photographers use it from time to time, but for some reason I saw it as just something that was shot on the side in between serious work
It’s totally my fault that I neglected these cameras/lenses/sensors and I’m glad I took the time to take a second look
Recently tensions around the country, and some parts of the world, have run high since the decisions not to indict the officers involved in the deaths of Mike Brown and Eric Garner were announced
New York, as always, has become a hotbed of protests and activism with many people from different walks of life joining together to stand up against what they believe to be a corrupt judicial and political system.
Of course you know I JUST HAD TO BE THERE FOR THAT
I came armed with the Fujifilm X100s by my side and wanted to tell the story, through pictures, of my experiences there.
