Super Grain is Super Good

The beauty of film is in the eye of this beholder. It looks like I’m turning that well known phrase to suit my persona regarding this particular film of Ultrafine Xtreme. I have shot with Kodak TMaxx, Ilford HP4, HP5 to name a few popular black and white films and will continue to do so depending on the look I am going for.

The first time I tried this film, I don’t know if it was the film itself or the scan, even though it has a moiré pattern, I love love love the result, the direction of the light draws me in to the subject. To me it’s a very haunting image of a time long ago but was taken today.


However, in this specific case, I wanted to try this super grain film out again and oh boy, do I love it. I have been working on a mini series of “farm life on film”, not as easy as I thought it would be, farm animals especially chickens move fast, but you never know what you’ll capture.

I mean, don’t these images just make you happy? Film and the smartest goat jumping through a hula-hoop!

Thanks for stopping by! Have an awesome day!
