“Feeling the heat (in more ways than one…)” 2016 Thompson Bucks County Classic, Doylestown, PA
I apologize for taking so long to post since the teaser I put up in Snappy Friday. My son and I had spent the weekend in the state of Pennsylvania to meet up with our friend, JP. Yes, a road trip! I do love road trips! The reason for this road trip? It was to try my hand at taking some sports photography, namely, the Thompson Bucks County Classic!
My hunt for an “everyday” black and white film continued…for the third successive week, I shot blindly around town with a different roll of film not knowing what to expect. This week, Nikki (my Nikon F90x) and I had some fun chewing through a roll of Fujifilm’s Neopan Acros. I had gotten used to handling the AF50/1.8 D lens and decided to use it again – it has become my choice lens for Nikki. (more…)
After coming away fresh from Jon’s Ilford PanF 50 challenge, I was itching to find a really nice go-to, everyday, black and white film. Don’t get me wrong – PanF is a great film, but I thought that it needed special handling just because of its lower ISO. Because of this, I wanted my film to have more of an ability handle a “run and gun” shot since I commute to and from work. What can I try out next? Enter Ilford’s Delta 100 film.

A couple months ago, my buddy Jon issued a challenge: Shoot a single roll of Ilford PanF with a Nikon SLR (in my case, a F90x) and a 50mm lens (AF Nikkor 50/1.8 D), using only manual settings. We were free to choose who would develop the film and scan it. (more…)
