Black & white film photography is, by far, my favourite.
Using a Bronica SQ-b medium format camera, Nikon FM & a Nikon F5, I shoot predominantly Ilford black & white films. My absolute top favourite film is Ilford FP4+, followed closely by HP5+ whether shot at box speed or pushed to ISO 1600.
On rare occasions I throw in a roll of Kodak T-Max, but that certainly is rare these days.
Part of the process is developing film. All of this is done in house by myself. Taking over the home laundry space, hours are spent meticulously mixing chemicals and bringing the film to life.
