Granted you must do the same with color film, but you have much more leeway because you have other colors to show what black and white would not be able to show. In , at the Milan Triennale, notorious black-and-white photographer Peter Lindbergh was interviewed by Antonio Ria about his work and his style of photography. Black-and-white photography is an interpretation of reality. What interests me most in my work is charisma.

Ilford HP5 vs. We have learned the unique qualities that each type of black and white film possess and how they can impact the emotion in a photograph. Black and white films can evoke the feeling of the scene, whether it be joy or sadness, the serenity or the drama, a happy timeless memory or an evocative powerful moment.

Whether its a portrait, a wedding, a landscape, sports, or a shot captured during your travels, black and white films capture the essence and emotion of the moment. When you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls. For this reason, we acknowledge the soft spot we have for Ilford.

Founded in , Ilford became a staple to the world of black and white films as we know it. It has a faithful following of which we are apart of! Delta and HP5 are two films with the same ISO sensitivity but with vast differences between them. What precisely are those differences? It was born originally being called just HP but has evolved into what we know today as HP5.

With a little more than 70 years of existence under its belt, HP5 has become the most shot black and white film in Europe and is one we see frequently in our lab! The full name of HP5 is Hypersensitive Panchromatic and its latest version was launched in Unique with its cubic grain and its wide latitude of exposure, it quickly became a favorite to those who were lovers of classical photography and its look. We bracketed HP5, changing only the exposure settings, and we were delighted at how well HP5 plays!

It retained the information and detail in the highlights, even at 4 stops overexposure! We found that it shines best, in regards to dynamic range, when it is overexposed by one stop. This 1 stop overexposure is the perfect mixture; there is a perfect balance between shadows and highlights. When you rate like such, the images render with a bit more intense blacks and whites and with a good deal more grain. These results can really make the image pop! And while yes, this look does bring forth more grain, and a more cubic sort of grain at that see image , and a loss of sharpness, we feel that this highlights the artistic taste of the image with the powerful tones of black and white.

If you shoot HP5 intending to shoot it at box speed which is , but you realize you rated it at , no sweat. And if that bothers you, take a deep breath, cause, again, HP5 can do some more heavy lifting. We can work on the negative in post to adjust the contrast to your liking.

This film because of its contrast is ideal for sunny and warm summer days. Take a peek at the bracketed HP5 images we provided; these were taken right off the scanner and you can easily imagine how much more can be tweaked to an image simply by adjusting the curve or adding more contrast in post. Summing up, HP5 gives a gritty, grainy intense atmosphere to your images and the characteristic high contrast and deep shadow rendition can sometime mean that some fine detail can lost in the emulsion.
