This blog is a continuation of my previous post Kodak Ektar 100
Please take the time to read back so you fully appreciate published film. This film is the second of four film’s that i shot at London Pride 2013.
By this point the evening was starting to get quite intoxicated with the streets crawling in cans, bottles, plastic cups and people racing to the nearest Wok to Walk or Opuz. My friends and I however decided to grab an Ed’s Burger, which is one of the nicest 50’s themed diner’s around Soho.
The atmosphere around Soho was filled with happiness and people coming together which made this was one of the easiest events i have ever photographed, other than London Fashion Week, however people go out just to get their photo taken at LFW and very often need some help to ‘look alive’. It may have been because i was drinking too.
I digress, people where ecstatic to see the camera, coming together, making faces and just a little bit of tom foolery to give a warmer more playful feel to the photos i captured.
I opted to stay within a 100iso film type as the evening was very bright, this also let me save the 2 higher iso film’s i have left over for use later on in the evening.
The results from the Agfa are exceptional, the contrasts are very appealing, the grain isn’t as fine as i would of expected from 100ISO however it doesn’t hinder the quality of the image, nor is it intrusive giving even and beautiful coverage of the photos. I used my Sigma 50mm Prime throughout the entire film alternating my f/stop from 2.5 to 5.6.
