Kodak BW400CN

This is the third post in a series of four rolls of film shot over London Pride 2013. Please take the time to look back through the previous post’s to fully appreciate the event and various film types used throughout the course of the evening.

The previous posts are Kodak Ektar 100 and AgfaPhoto APX 100

By this point in the evening i was getting quite drunk, i had great friends around me and the streets were alive with thousands of people celebrating Pride. The city had an energy surging through it. It was exciting to scan and see the results of the 400CN as i couldn’t remember some of the shots i had taken (oh dear).

This film delivers excellent deep contrasts and tones with a very desirable fine grain considering the ISO. Skin has come out clear and the highlights are giving a gorgeous glow.

I will shoot the next roll pushed as i am eager to see the results first hand as i feel it will not be able to handle a massive push due to it already being quite a contrasty look, however i could be wrong as processing will play an important factor.

Leading me on to some important news! I have signed up for Kennington Camera Club, which is only a stone’s throw away from me. I can now use the studio for larger shoots and i will also be using their darkroom to develop my own film.
