Joanne on Lonsdale
Joanne on Lonsdale, in North Vancouver. December 2018. Shot with my Hasselblad 500C (Apollo), on Rollei RPX 400 black and white film, pushed to EI 1600. Developed in Joanne’s kitchen sink with Kodak
I’ve read reviews on this film, and strangely, I noticed a few negative reviews by people who’ve tried shooting with Rollei RPX 400, the main complaint being that it has a bit of a muddy, or dull look to it. I disagree. I’ve found that this film has a very attractive “classic cinema” look to it. It does produce some intense darks, but it’s also capable of bright highlights, and some decent mid tones. It also has a nice, fine, soft grain.
