Tired of urban sunny colored pics? Dive in for a refreshing evening breeze atmosphere :)
When I’ve got that film into my hands the first thought was: omg, now I can shoot in complete darkness and open a new genre of invisible fotography! The film can see what the human eye doesn’t. Well, the first 120 film of that type that was loaded into Lubitel 166u had been peacefully turned into a grainy mess with hardly recognizable contours. I still keep one more film to myself.
The second was a 35-mm film and I’ve tried to use the brightest lens of those I have – the one of Olympus OM-1n (1.8 aperture). I’ve took a series of pic in subdued light during the St.Patrick day (yeah, it is celebrated in Israel not less then in Ireland :). Some pics had been taken at home.
The picture becomes soft and the rice grain comes out when you try to increase the contrast (it’s not a crime in a digital era – after all a few years ago you could find papers of varying contrast from -7 to +7 stops for b/w printing). The results are pleasing but it’s still not a complete darkness, actually. From the previous review I’ve learned that the film is kinda true 1000ISO, not 3200. On the other side, some sources say that it can be pushed up to 12800 ISO. So there is a chance for a new photography genre. I’ll try it and promise to tell more on that later :)
