Sunday Shooter: Windy by the shore


Fp4+ pushed to asa 800

I had some loose end of Ilford FP4+ and tried pushing it three stops to ASA 800. Here is few random shots. This was developed with Kodak HC-110 dilution A. In my experience this dilution will produce a bit stronger contrast than milder dilutions. But i choose this over the others due the fact that the developing times would get too long. These shots came out really nice and i will be doing some more tests with pushing this film.

The grain is manageable but as you can see in picture above the dynamic range will not work in higher contrast scenes.

With lower contrast scenes its quit nice as you can see below, might even work for a portrait.
