Darkroom Vlog – Making Contact Sheets

In this vlog I made 3 contact sheets of my recent rolls. It started out as an idea to livestream from the darkroom. However, youtube being youtube, it does not allow people to livestream from mobile, if you have less than 1000 subscribers.

Streaming from mobile is the only practical way for me, so instead I recorded and edited this video, I think it works better than livestream would be.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Stay safe and well!

First Roll of 35mm Ortho Plus

Ilford has brought out a new film last year… well strictly speaking making its Ortho Plus film available in 35mm & 120; it was only available in large format.

As the name suggests, it is an orthochromatic film designed to be copy film. I doubt if there is still a demand for copy film nowadays, but it offers an intriguing and different experience as a photographic film, as it is not sensitive to red light.

These are from the first roll I shot with Contax RTS with 50mm f1.7 Planar, in my opinion it performs very well with landscapes, cityscapes and portrait. I also noticed some halo effect when shot straight to lights.

Hiking with Mamiya C330

As with everyone in Hong Kong, I went for a short hiking near Kowloon Reservoir. I brought my Mamiya C330 equipped with 65mm lens, and shot a couple rolls of Fujicolor PRO 400H and a roll of Kodak Tri-X.

Besides the video, here are some of the photos on that day…
