In Praise of Slower Film

As time goes on, my preference seems more and more towards using slower (less light sensitive) films and the larger negative size of medium format; it is hard to beat that combination for sharpness and fine grain. (Not that grain is always bad, quit the opposite) but this is the look that resonates with me these days. This set of photographs is from this past weekend in Niagara On-the-Lake, at Fort George. All were made using my Hasselblad 500C/M, shot on Ilford Pan F Plus, a slow speed (ISO 50) but wonderfully sharp and detailed film. Toned in post.
