Camera: Canon Canonet, 45mm f/1.9
Film: HP5, shot at box speed.
Exposure data: No idea, maybe 1/250 and f/2.8
I use HP5 from time to time, but my goto for 400 ISO b&w is Tri-X – I prefer the inky blacks, but HP5 is a good second choice. As I have to shoot it over the next couple of months I better do some research before the next roll goes in the camera.
I like cemeteries, unless I’m there to bury someone.
They’re quiet, the residents don’t mind having their photos taken – none have complained that I recall – there’s interesting local history, it’s a great place to test lenses and cameras; and I’m fascinated by the rituals that surround death.
This cemetery - one of two within a short drive of home – has many of statues & memorials at eye level, making it easier to photograph them than those up a bit higher.
I love the weathering of the stone, the texture and tones that years of wind, rain and sunshine have given it.
