Ilford HP5 (120mm, 400iso) B&W

A review of the Ilford HP5 (120mm, 400iso) film

It’s a cloudy day, strokes of white light are beaming through fluffy clouds and I find my self wandering in the streets, floating gently in the humidity. I have my Holga 120 CFN with a bran new film: a medium speed black and white Ilford. Beautiful results with that soft light: ultra fine grain, amazing contrast reminding me of early Truffaut films.

This is a “treasure film” like I call it, not an every day one. Choose religiously, and wait for the right afternoon calling of white light.

    I've just shot two rolls of this film, both in 35 and 120mm. Can't wait to see the pictures! I hope they come out half as good as yours.
