My wife posing on a footbridge over the Taughannock Falls State Park Marina inlet.
Shot on Kodak High Contrast Copy Film (Eastman 5069) at ASA 12 using a Ricoh XR-7 with a Sears 135mm f/2.8 lens.
Developed at home in HC-110B for 5 minutes at 70F, and then scanned on an Epson v500.
Shooting with Eastman 5069 has been an interesting experiment. It had enough silver in it to use for pictorial purposes, but you need to shoot it around ASA 12. In dim situations, 6 is absolutely required. It’s very very contrasty, as the name would imply, but also has very limited dynamic range because of that. It also has severe reciprocity failure, with any exposures longer than 1 second turning pure white, even when metered properly.

A film photographer in a digital world: Alex Luyckx
His Twitter profile describes Ontario-based Alex Luyckx as a ‘Film photographer in a digital world.’ While he excels in both digital and film photography, he has a soft side and a big heart for analogue. He is also described as a ‘Seeker of abandoned spaces,’ and ‘reenactor of the war of 1812,’ We were fortunately able to get in touch with this film aficionado, who agreed to grant an interview.
