Rollei Retro 80s

This is the second roll of film that i shot in New York City. The first roll is in my previous post Fuji Provia 100F

I was eager to load a black and white film into my camera as i typically favour shooting b/w over colour. I believe this is because of my admiration over the years of photographers such as Vivian Maier, William Eggleston, Henri-Cartier Bresson and others.

This film travels over the Highline, Brooklyn Bridge, Lower Manhattan, Parks and Sidewalks. Unfortunately this is the last roll of film i shot in New York City as i was shooting digital too. The digital work can be seen on my website www.bradleychippington.co.uk

I opted for 80ISO as the weather was astonishing. 30c all week and clear blue skies. Even at 80ISO i had to raise the shutter higher than i expected because of the strength of the sun. The low ISO creates a gorgeous soft fine grain coupled with the contrasts and sharpness of the film produces some strong images.

Once again, not so much with this film as the last but there are a few typical ‘touristy’ shots. I included them in this post as everyone likes to view different types of photography. I however prefer my street work over my architecture work.
