Cell Block 8

I had the great pleasure of spending today on a photo road trip up to Philadelphia and the Eastern State Penitentiary with Peter and Dave today. I was so excited to see the results I developed my first roll same day... and even got them scanned.


I opted to go with a two camera, three lens setup - F3HP and FM2 paired with my 24/2.8, 55/2.8 and 105/2.5 (I also borrowed Peter's sweet 16 fisheye). It was nice going sans camera bag and just having the two cameras, I didn't change lenses much during the whole visit. I shot the same film at the same EV and it was really great. I think I will be doing this more in the future, speaking of future I'm really happy with my first Xtol experience. I wasn't thrilled with my TMAX developer for pushing Tri-X to 1600 earlier this season and was looking for an opportunity to play around with a different developer. I've got another roll from the FM2 to develop tomorrow - thats the one with the cool fisheye shots!
