I’ll have to move the weekly update day from friday to saturday and shoot even more films as backup. This is getting too stressful otherwise. I’m drained and don’t have anything interesting to say. So lets jump right over to the images.

Week #13 – Fujifilm Neopan 400

Fujifilm Neopan 400
Fujifilm Neopan 400 (Discontinued in 2013)

One of the first films I bought for the project. It took quite a while to actually shoot it and then some to finally develop it. But in my book the outcome was worth the wait. For an ISO 400 film the grain is quite fine and the images are nicely sharp. It’s really a shame, that the film was discontinued by Fujifilm.

Halle, Germany – March 2015

Shop-Talk:

35mm, black/white negative film, 36 exposures, ISO 400, Discontinued in 2013. Film strips curl quite a bit, so it’s not the easiest film to scan.

There is a monthly critique night called “FoDo” (Foto-Donnerstag = Photo Thursday) I regularly attend. Usually you’ll get a subject and have one month to produce new work exploring the theme. During the next meeting everyone (who wants to) presents one photo and everybody else gives a review.

This months subject was: “Series of 5 images on the subject of Nothing(ness)”. I took these during my weekend in Halle, which is – fittingly – the most empty major city of Germany.
