Amy and I carouse the streets of Golden Hill while Phil and Janice sketch the home of Amy's old psychiatrist a few blocks away...
This is my first time in about two years trying to shoot Ilford Pan-F 50 Plus. It is a notoriously difficult film to work with, as it exhibits a veritable combination platter of slow speed (nominally 50 ASA, but really closer to 25 or 32), ridiculously high contrast, and incredible developer sensitivity. But, when you master this emulsion, supposedly it sings with rich, buttery, silvery images that withstand mural-size enlargement. I need to tame this wild beast in order to call myself a self-respecting photog.
So anyway, I shot two rolls of the stuff and still don't know what the hell I'm doing.
Be forewarned: the following images are very contrasty. Painfully so. I mean, just LOOK at them: ouch!
