    I'm thinking about doing a documentary type project to demonstrate the mess that "commercialism" has made of various parts of the Smoky Mountains.

    In order to provide visual evidence, the pictures will undoubtedly look atrocious.........any suggestions?

    I'm going to have to go wide angle for a lot of the shots just to show how much people have damaged what was once a beautiful area. The pictures of the developed areas, as I am envisioning the project, will break all the rules.

    The ugliest film I've ever seen is Kodak Gold (or Max) 800. It should be cheap and versatile.

    What about using B&W Film of a high speed to give it a gritty/grainy effect?

    I don't see the point of making it look worse than it actually is. If it's as bad as you say it is, it will show up just as grotesque as forcing it.

    It might even have more impact capturing 'high quality' rubbish.
