Shot on film: Ilford HP5 | Plaubel Makina 67 | Nikkor 80/2.8

Shooting in the dark.

Ilford HP5

Camera settings: Most of the shots were done at night, and they were shot at 1/30s and f/2.8.

Water Avenue Coffee

We went downtown to my favorite cafe, Water Avenue Coffee. The sun was lovely and I took a quick shot of the cups.

Horse Brass Pub

Headed to Horse Brass Pub for some food. It is always dark and dingy inside.

Tuesdays are Trivia night, and it is so hard to shoot in the winter. High-Speed BW could barely capture these shots.

My neighbors called the emergency services, so I could see bright blue and red lights from my window, but it translated to bright white here. I think they were fine. The rain gives it some atmosphere.

I really love this roll of HP5. The indoor shots were moody enough, and I actually captured an epic portrait in this role (not shared). I could see why people love HP5 over Tri-X. It feels moody. I do wonder if it was just this roll of HP5, or that any BW could have captured the feeling. Who knows? More testing and more BW shooting during this winter.
