I recently posted on the Universe blog regarding the history of this cemetary, and the pictures I took with my FujiXT2. You can read that HERE. I also took my Canon loaded with some Pancro 400 B&W film, and now that the lab is up and running again, I’ve had it processed and so here are some of the results.
Still with the Rollei SL35 and the roll of Silberra 400, these are the shots I took with it at South Shields. Strangely none of these ones had alien light leaks.
But this one had a lot of hairs on it!
This one did better
I can never resist photographing the Weebles
And that’s the end of the roll of Silberra 400. I like the tonality of this film, it’s not super-contrasty, but that’s great for lots of detail and texture. I’ve still to try out some different B&W films, but would definitely use it again.
Stay tooned, for next time, South Shields beach in colour!
I’ve got a couple of rolls developed now, so a few Fridays taken care of! Haven’t been out shooting though as the weather has been abysmal here. A couple of weeks ago I took the Rollei SL35 out to Newcastle and discovered that although the film seemed to be winding on, the counter wasn’t moving so I wasn’t sure what was happening. Well I got 36 frames back and a couple of them are unusable, and a few have wierd goings on on them, but the rest are OK. The film I used was a Russian film called Silberra 400, and it has a nice old world feel to it.
I have no idea how that last shot got like that, the wierd white lights in the sky on the left and all the dusty bits. I think I might have travelled back in time when I pressed the shutter. 🙂
