To be honest, I don't know when I took these photos using this mysterious film from Czech. I put this film into the Canon AE-1 and start shooting on the street. One word for this film: Fantastic!

I bought this film from the Lomography Online shop and it was a foolish decision when I bought just one roll. Oh well, that’s all in the past. What I’m trying to say is this Fomapan black and white film is a mysterious film that gives you deep black. Yes, deep black with a little bit of grain here and there; but who hates grains? I love them!

See that deep black? Yes! that’s fantastic! That’s what Fomapan gives you! Oh my! Oh my! I don’t know if the lab processed this film badly or I exposed the film underexposed but let’s skip that part and think that Fomapan is a really good film for outdoor or even maybe indoor. Let’s see!

It’s good for indoor photos too!

The images are a bit of grey, but you can see that deep shade of black! Oh it’s really fantastic! You all should really try it! I have one advice and one rule. First, is the advice: Use it for street photography. Trust me! it suites really well with any kind of SLRs or compact cameras.

…and the rule: Watch out for that deep black images! They’re really good!

That’s all folks!

    I used Fomapan 100 and 400 some time ago and was very satisfied of the results! A great BW film for sure!! And Foma also sells a Foma Developper and Foma Fixer for easy home processing! :)

    I had a few shots with Foma 400. It is a rather grainy film, but when correctly exposed it produces very somber, dramatic images with a lot of contrast. I really appreciated it!
