First Review of Alley Spring & Mill Large Format 4x5 FP4+ Negatives - Part 1

October 11, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

In the video below, I do a quick review of some new Ilford FP4+ negatives that I created at Alley Spring & Mill, located in the Ozarks region in Southeastern Missouri.  I was in the area and stopped by to check the status of autumn colors and the light was so good, I had to stop and do some black and white.  I photographed three scenes with FP4+ at EI 100 and developed in D76 1:1 in my Jobo CPP2.  

In the video I discuss some of my metering details when I created the exposures in the field.  

I will be creating proper proofs of the sheet film next and then selecting a candidate to create an enlargement of if I find something that resonates with me.  


In part 2, I review the proper proofs.
​In part 3, I create a 16x20 darkroom print from one of the negatives.
