When I think of Ilford HP5 I think of a classic black and white film. It seems to be everywhere in the world of photography. It is some photographers go-to film. I know I have shot quite a bit of it in my time and a lot of it back when I was in school. However I have only shot a few rolls of it as I am getting back into photography again. I was on a mission to try out different film stocks and find my favourite so I figured I would give HP5 I should give it another shot.
I am beginning to really like the Fujifilm Acros II 100 film stock. I’ve shot it a handful of times and am always pleasantly surprised to see the results. The grain is fine, organic and beautiful. The tonal range is spectacular to say the least. The film seems to capture everything in a very natural way making every picture a work of art.
This is the second part of that first photo mission with the Nikon AFD. After burning through the roll of colour film I loaded up the little camera with a roll of Fujifilm Acros 100 II. I had heard that this was one of the sharpest black and white films around and was curious to test it out.
