    i’ve noticed you’ve been shooting this particular film a lot lately. any reason why you like it so much? it seems very pleasing to me (lots of contrast), but i was hoping to get your artistic point of view.

    • For most things, Fuji Neopan 1600 works great – it’s sharp, has low-light sensitivity, and the contrast is very nice. At times it can have too much contrast, though. I just shot a lot of it in New York for convenience. It was nice to have such a versatile film handy.

  2. I am truly fascinated by grain, now. Thanks to you. It looks quite real, your photo.

    • You know, as fast as this film is, the grain isn’t all that bad. When I first started shooting film, I wasn’t big on grain. Over time, especially as I shot more black and white, I learned to really love the texture of grain. There are definitely some films I shoot more than others because of the quality of their grain. One thing’s certain: Film grain is much more attractive than digital grain.
