Orthochromatic World - First test film ADOX Ortho 25

Orthochromatic World - First test film ADOX Ortho 25

My first experiments, using a super low speed orthochromatic B/W film. Photographic materials have been orthochromatic in the 19th and at the beginning of the 20th century. This kind of films provide an extremely high contrast at very fine grain, because it is not capturing red light. That gives a very vintage look ( exactly like photographs have been taken 100-150 years ago ). Interesting film. I will certainly use it again.
