    Here are a few tentative steps back into film photography.

    The Film was Ilford HP5 plus developed myself and scanned from the negatives.

    All criticisms welcome.

    Thanks,

    Rob.

    Don't care what anyone says, there's no better 35mm film on the market than Ilford! (Although I prefer FP4) Nice images, but I would suggest cloning out the lower leg and forearm in #6.

    what developer did you use out of interest? scans look good to me.

    I used ID-11 1:1 for 13 mins (although my timer fell into a sink full of water half way through so it could have been 12 or 14 mins! )

    I also used a red filter on 3, 4 and 7,but the effect wasn't as pronounced as I'd hoped.

    Scanned using an Epson V200,I only really wanted a scanner for making contact sheets but I've been really impressed with the quality (comparing them to photos developed traditionally) especially considering it's such a cheap machine.

    Thanks for the comments,

    Rob.

    Nice Rob!

    Ah the darkroom is a clumsy place at times lol, still, looks like the results came out ok so the time couldn't have been far off.

    The detail in these photos is very good. My favorite photo is #3 with the strong diagonal line of a road. My only comment is that of those before me: The photo (#6) has a part of a person in it.

    I think its neat too that you developed these yourself. I bet the end result is more satisfying when you are responsible from shutter click to print, right?
