The next film I decided to try in my Leica with the 50mm Summicron Lens, was the Kodak TMax 400 black and white film as I knew I had achieved nice results from that film in the past with other cameras.
I decided to take a walk with my dog to St Ann’s Wells Gardens in Hove and try out the film there.
It’s a nice, quiet place to walk in winter time and I knew I still had to get to grips with getting used to using a Rangefinder camera again and improve on my focusing skills.
Here is one of Daisy I took using the camera and film:
Here is a small selection of photos I took whilst on this walk:
I quite like the lighting effect of the way the sunlight is shining through on this one:
Whilst I suppose the next photo I’m about to show is under exposed, there is something about it I really like. I think it’s the dark contrast of the tree/plants against the grey sky which has come out in a striped texture on this negative. To me, it looks like a really old photo taken years ago. I also think it has a tropical feel about it:
Overall, it was nice to try out a black and white film in the camera which didn’t have too much contrast compared to the JCH film. I really liked the crisp details I got from the camera.
After this film I decided I wanted to try out an Ilford black and white film. I look forward to blogging next week with the results.
