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…

Afternoon and Sunset in Kwun Tong

It was a nice and clear December afternoon where I just got my Nikkor 105mm lens repaired, these are some test shots after I got the lens back with Fujicolor 100. I think they turned out great! Not having shot Fujicolor 100 for a while, I am surprised how warm the photos came out… well I guess it was sunset anyway…

New Video – Street Level with T-MAX 400

This is a new try for me, making video about myself shooting on the street. I take a lot inspiration from other photographers on Youtube, and I thought it might be interesting to make videos myself.

I was half grocery shopping and half shooting with my Konica Genba Kantoku 28 HG and Kodak T-MAX 400. As you may or may not know, wet market is my favoured terrain.

So there you go, any thoughts and comments are appreciated!
