Favorite Film Stocks with Samples

Black and White Films

I have tried may black and white films and the one I enjoyed the most was Ilford HP5. It is not an expensive film and is widely available around the country. My favorite thing to do with HP5 is shooting it at 1600 speed and asking my developer to push the film processing. This allows HP5 and me to work in a variety of scenarios and always have enough light. I use HP5 in both 35mm and 120mm 90% of the time I shoot.

Superia leans towards red and warmer colors while Ultramax leans cooler and more blues. It's a really fun film to use and produces really consistent results.
