The most Iconic film: Tri-X. It is so iconic that brand new Leicas came with a roll of Tri-X. The film might not be everyone’s cup of tea, and it might not even be the best film, but many famous photographs have been shot on it. As a result, Kodak Tri-X is one of the films that I happened to have. For the black and white winter, I have to shoot at least a roll.
Camera settings: Internal light meter determined rough exposure, outdoors shots, including those with snow, were shot at 1/500s at f/11; indoor shots were at the lowest speed of 1/60 at f/2.8. I did not meter the scenes in the snow because the light reflection from the snow fools the meter.
I had planned a day off to ski in the mountains, but the plan was thawed by the ongoing blizzard conditions. As a result, the compromise was to head to Ikea, which I have not been in years. Well, except for that one time to eat their hot dog in Iceland, which we ended up with food poisoning. We did not get food this time.
