The Harlowe House (Part 3)

March 20, 2011

Even though I still haven’t gone through all the scans from my last rolls of film, I was very excited to pick up these negatives yesterday, as it was the first roll of B&W film I’d shot on Cinna in awhile. Some portraits, some cats and a few random scenes, it has a nice diversity in subject matter.

I actually shot this frame thinking I had color film in the camera and cursed myself when I realized my error. It was really gorgeous the way the red carpet brought out the mahogany tones in the piano’s wood. But, now that I’m looking at the final result, I’m glad I made the mistake… Even if the focus is a little off. :)


Camera: Rolleiflex 2.8C
Shutter / Aperture: 1/50, 2.8
Film: Ilford HP5 PLUS
Scanned from a negative developed by Blue Moon Camera & Machine

[] I’ve been trying out a lot of different b&w films lately but I agree, the HP5 is a weinah for sure. And thank YOU – behind every great business is a great support team. :) Glad you’re enjoying them!

Beauty! This HP5 is nice. It’s got rich contrast, but still lets you see a lot of detail in the shadows.

By the way, the new Chunfen actions are magnificent. Thanks again; you’re a genius!

[] I don’t know what your camera-stuff-budget is like, but you could probably find a TLR camera on the cheap on eBay and the like – somewhere between $100-300, depending on the brand/quality/etc. But, of course, then there’s the cost of film & developing. But still! *nudge*nudge* :D

Gorgeous!! You have no idea how excited I am about your new actions! I am in Australia so anxiously waiting for Monday in the US!! : )
