It has been a while since posting anything to my One Shot posts. I am realizing now that I never formally introduced this series. I typically use them to share some of my film photography with readers of the site that may not follow my flickr stream closely which is where I usually share more of my film work. Due to continuing hold ups with the new site design I have been pushing back the launch of my expanded writing ideas and focus on the site but you can still expect more around here in the future! Anyways, I loved the classic feel of this shot, soft and filled with warm grey tones I feel as though this moment existed only in black and white. I developed this film a little differently than I usually do. While shooting I underexposed 100 ISO film by two full stops and then pushed the developing time to make up for the underexposure. This can be a bit unpredictable but the added contrast and grain I was searching for ended up being too much for my taste and a lot of the shots on the rolls I tried this with ended up more or less unusable in my eyes. As I continue to scan them in I will be posting a few more over on flickr if you would like to see more of the results form this little experiment.
For anyone wondering this was shot with my Voigtlander R3M and 40mm f/1.4 lens using Fuji Acros film. I typically do not use my film photography for desktop images but may reconsider this in the future if I get my hands on a better scanner.
