San Antonio meets Agfa APX BW on Lisboa, Perfect Match!

This was the first time I used bw film on the LCA, still impressed by the results! What to expect from this film: fine grain, high contrast

A Portuguese college student told me about “Festa de San Antonio”, it’s a happening in which everybody is around the streets, eating, dancing, drinking… Living! I could not miss it, thus I started thinking in the best film to be loaded. It was ages since I wanted to try black and white, so I bought a roll of Agfa APX , 100 asa.

As it is a low speed film, the grain is really fine, so if you prefer sharp images to grainy ones it is a good option!

This film has as well an actual high contrast, I do love the portraits and the depth of the different shadows. All the grey range comes up in an amazing way:

Hey, wait… I was there for feeling the vibe, the atmosphere. I do believe in colour it could not have been better:

OMG! …. those roasted sardines everywhere, the fishy smoke …

The truth is I am not able to find any cons to it, let’s give it a try!
