I went to B & H and picked up a bottle of Cinestill Df96 monobath to test out developing my own black and white photos to save some money and also because I hate waiting to get something back even if it’s only a day. Anyway I am pretty happy with the results some far and will probably be developing my own black and white photos from now on.
Camera : Canon AE1
Film : Ilford Delta 100
Shot on Cinestill BwXX after scanning I had to bring into Lightroom for a bit dodging and burning to get what I wanted.
Shot on my Canon AE1 Program using Cinestill BwXX. A few of my shots had some light leaks but only when I’m shooting at a slower shutter speed. I believe I shot this at 2.8 / 60th of a second. I’m not mad at it because it gives the shot a little more character in my opinion.
I took this shot on my Fujica ST705 using some Kodak 100 TMax and it is one of my favorite shots that I have taken since I started using film again because it was my first day of going to college. I know it doesn’t sound like a huge deal, but I was nearly 40 years old and had never been to college and I can say from without a doubt (I technically have a career) it really isn’t worth the trouble accept for the piece of paper I will get when I graduate and truthfully I’m only still going because a of person who pushed to do it and the others who continue to push me, but again I still think it is a huge waste of time in my opinion and if you are going keep it up because it will build character... Hopefully.
Shot from a Friday morning walkabout with Lorenzo Mitil who was out shooting some Cinestill BwXX around the Financial District in Lower Manhattan. Side note check out the Oculus during the morning rush hour, it’s like watching an episode of Planet Earth the only thing missing is Sir David Attenborough narrating.
I first saw a few images that were shot using Cinestill BwXX and wanted to get a roll or two to test out. I looked for it at B & H Photo Video and saw it was on back order which had it for the best price so when they did get back in stock I order two rolls, also I did see it on Amazon but for double the price of all the stores that did carry it. The first roll I just started shooting around the city in the Financial District because you can get harsh light and dark shadows you can get and shot the second roll down in Philadelphia where I did get some decent shots. If your like me and only shoot black and white when using film you will love images you get from it, believe me even the really shit images I took have me looking them over twice just because of the feel the film gives them.
