Fashion’s Night Out Beverly Hills 2011: T-MAX P3200

Leica M7, Zeiss 50 Sonnar 1.5, T-MAX P3200 (click for larger version)

Nothing much to say here. Just a slideshow from a couple of rolls of this very fast and grainy film. I liked it. I just didn’t really have the easiest time scanning it. Actually shooting it was also something to get used to as well. Would have to get used to it and think about shooting it much differently than I did.

  1. Donald,
    Thanks for the post. I am in love with the tones (and grain) in this film. I published an article about Kodak and their woes as of late – selling off most of what remained in an attempt to save the brand – and how it saddens me. The article specifically addresses the discontinuation of the T-MAX P3200 film. For the article, I used the images from this post without your permission. For that, I am deeply sorry. I would really love to continue using the image if you are okay with it, but I will certainly understand if you would like it removed. For what it’s worth, full attribution and a link to your website appear with the image. I apologize for using your comment section as a contact form, but I could not find another way to make contact. Please let me know your preference with regards to the image one way or the other. Thank you in advance.

    1. Thank you, Aaron.

      Oh hey, I have a fairly unique and liberal attitude about images once they are posted online. Thought about writing a blog entry on that subject but haven’t decided whether I want to face the backlash from all the photographers who are so concerned about the unauthorized use of their images.

      Anyway, I love film, and I hope Kodak or whoever controls Kodak, the name, and their future, figures out how much the world needs this film. And I hope that your note and my pictures somehow helps them do that.
