  1. A very peaceful scene. I’m about to start a new project using black and white film and I wonder how you like the XP2 film. It’s very convenient because I don’t have to send it away or bother with chemicals at home. I’ve used one roll as a test and found that the negatives seem a bit dark. Some people say to use the film at ISO200 (especially in flat light) to get better exposures. Do you use as is?

    Thanks Marcus. I like XP2 very much, partly because I do my own C-41, partly because it scans very well and I can use automatic dust/scratch removal. Although I don’t recall if I did with this shot or not, I generally shoot it at ISO200, unless it’s a very grey day and then I shoot at box speed. I find it prints well in the darkroom too, so it’s a good all ’rounder, as they say. I buy it in bulk and load my own cartridges to save money.
