Cruel Mistress

Ilford SFX 200 is one tough bitch to shoot well in the city…

I’ve just souped a couple of rolls, and i guess i got… maybe 4 shots out of the 12 i shot today. Just leave the shutter open for… ever! It’s like shooting with paper – wait for the sun to burn a pattern.


Having been cooped up all week it was nice to get out and about, but the inspiration never seems to co-operate on days like that… fickle fucking muse. Still, feel better for having got out of the house and reminded myself (again) that Tokyo is just plain ugly in the daylight.

  1. I dont get it – the earlier rolls were ok, weren’t they? Or was the hit-rate equally bad with those?

  2. don’t think it’s anything to do with the film, just that i’ve been trying to shoot with it in the city.

    the last two rolls have had a mysterious line down the middle, that is either something bad in the new magazine (although i think they were shot in two different magazines…), or i did something bad to two rolls during development… or, something else of which i can’t conceive happening during scanning / processing.

    it’s all very confusing 🙂

Wise words...
