Some of the Films that I Shoot
Here is an image of some of the films I use.
I work primarily with medium and large format lens and pinhole cameras. One of my "goto" films is ILFORD'S HP5 plus in all formats, I not only enjoy the easy of exposure but the ease of developing this well-rounded monochrome film. It is also the film I would advise my students to start with when instructing an undergraduate photography class.
For low ISO film, it's a toss-up between Fuji's ACROS 100 and ILFORD'S Delta 100. I love the packaging and presentation of the Acros, it also (IMHO) produces some fabulous tonality. Whether I feel like using some of my precious stock of ACROS or Delta 100, I enjoy the tonality range and acutance of both films. I've recently started to use a new film to myself called Kentmere 100 and so far, I am impressed with the results.
When working with colour, my preference is for transparency film and this means either Fujifilm's Velvia or Provia. I am leaning more towards Provia these days and I like good, rich colours, but don't feel the need to overemphasise this aspect of the subject(s). I like using these colour films in my pinhole cameras.
For very special situations, I will also use Kodak's Technical Pan and one of my new favourites, colour infrared film if it can be secured at a workable price point.
