35mm Film Camera
The Nikon F was the very first 35mm film camera ever produced by Nikon in 1959. In contrast, the Nikon F6 was the very last 35mm film camera produced by Nikon starting in 2004 and was discontinued in 2020.

MOST USED FILMS
If you have been following for me any length of them, then you already know that I specialize in black and white handmade prints in the darkroom. This means that I rarely ever use any type of color film.
For my day to day film, I use HP5 and I can vary the EI rating from 200 to 1600. For landscapes, I like to use Ilford Pan F 50 and rate it at EI 25.
I have tested and tried many black and white film developers over the years and recently I have switched to using Kodak HC-110 for almost all of my films. The convenience and reliable development of HC-110 has won me over.
I develop Ilford Pan F rated at EI 25 for normal development using HC-110 B (1+31) for 4 minutes and 15 seconds at 20C.
I develop Ilford HP5 rated at EI 200 for normal development using HC-110 B (1+31) for 5 minutes and 15 seconds. When I rate HP 5 at EI 400, I develop for 6 minutes, EI 800 7 minutes 30 seconds, and EI 1600 11 minutes.
As I mentioned above in the film section, I make handmade prints of many different types by hand in the darkroom, so therefore, I don't scan my film or use a hybrid workflow. I have taught many workshops regarding hybrid workflows, I just don't use that approach for my fine art prints.
I mostly make enlarged negatives from the 35mm film so I can use my 8x10 enlarger for making large scale silver gelatin fine art prints. My silver gelatin workflow is standardized on the 8x10 negative format.
I also make enlarged negatives for making a variety of different handmade contact prints to include silver gelatin, silver chloride, platinum/palladium, bromide, gum bichromate, and others.
I don't choose to use Photoshop or digital negatives for my fine art prints because I enjoy my pure analog processes and my vision is realized through the handmade analog methods.
