  4. Gorgeous rich texture. Looks almost as if it could have been stand developed.

  5. You should really try this film – Efke 25. It’s slow as hell, but it’s a really cool film – made to emulate the high-silver single emulsions that were popular in the 40s and 50s. It has a very distinct look.

    Such wonderful texture.

    Can I ask for a bit of technical info? Tripod? Lens / Aperture, development info, etc?

  8. Nick – Sure: Definitely a tripod (1/15 sec. at f/16). Efke 25 developed in Rodinal (not sure about the agitation).

    Angelina – Thank you. Glad you stopped by.

  9. The only place I think I can get Efke 25 easily is Silverprint but you need a minimum order of £25. Next time I need to get some Rodinal (very soon) I’ll get some then. I often work with slower films with the only exception being Tri-X. This weekend I worked exclusively in Kodachrome 64 and it’s surprising how usable ISO 64 can be for most hours of the day!

  10. Removing the color just brings so much more life to the textures. Very nicely done.

  11. Serenity – I’ve actually got seven rolls of Kodachrome (PKR) in the fridge (they don’t expire till the end of the year). I might use some this weekend. The good thing is, my local lab sends to Dwayne’s all the time (they have a deal with them because Dwayne’s does their 110 stuff), which means the rates are good – processing a 36-exposure roll of Kodachrome only costs $8 ($9 mounted). Turnaround is only about two weeks, which is tolerable. Since you’re in the UK, what would it cost you?

    Ed – Thanks. I’ve only been using this particular black and white film for about a week, but it’s really growing on me. Who would have thought a Croatian import in a flimsy, non-DX-coded cassette would produce such pleasing results. Never judge a book by its cover, I guess.
