I tend to avoid wide-angle lenses for portraits; they tend not to be very flattering. The angle and distance from the subject in this portrait (my friend, and fellow photographer and podcaster Alex Luyckx) made it work. The light of an overcast day coming through the window was amazing.
Voigtlander Bessa R2M, 35mm/f1.7 Voigtlander Ultron lens
Kodak TMax 400 film
Here are two more portraits of Zoë, in black and white. Both taken with my RZ67. The first one was shot on Ilford FP4+ film, the second on Ultrafine Xtreme 100; I got this roll free from Downtown Camera to try out. Very nice film!
While looking for something else in my darkroom I came across something I didn’t know I had: a roll of Kodak Panatomic X film from the 1980’s obviously long-expired. Slow speed films tend to be usable long after their expiry dates so I gave it a shot. There was some staining on the negatives but with some work in post I got some usable images, like these two.
