Film diaries – Delft, August 2015

A year ago I started shooting black and white film. Scary at first, but immensely enjoyable once the brain made the switch. Everything is much slower — there’s no immediate way to see the shot you’ve taken and you’re thinking 7 times before pressing the shutter. Much tighter composition discipline as a result!

A €5 camera (Nikon F-301), one lens (50/1.8) and one roll of Tmax 100 and Delta 100 each — that’s the kit for the shots below. I was very lucky with the light those few days: Delft was basking in a warm summer sun, and the interplay of light and shadow on the streets was really inspiring — there were shots on every corner.

It took me a long while to get a solid workflow for scanning and processing the negatives, but I think I’m at a stage where I can share some of the results with you  🙂
