  3. I too really like the contrast here. By the way, do you do your own processing?

    • Sometimes, but not for this one.

  4. I agree, the contrast of the film is perfect for this subject. I would have expected that the Neopan 1600 would be more grainy. How did you develop it?

    • Neopan 1600 is a very contrasty film. Also, because of its extreme sensitivity to light, it often exhibits highlight bias. These factors can mask some of the grain. Of course, the lab that does my stuff often develops faster black and white films in DD-X, which is a very smooth fine-grain developer.

    • Appreciate the kind words. I still have quite a bit to learn about black and white photography, but I think I’m getting better.
