This post has the remaining frames from my very first roll of Delta 3200. You can see the other frames here and here. Also mixed in the photos below are some shots from my OM1 loaded with Ilford Delta 400. This was also my first venture with Delta 400. I will be posting more images from the 400 roll soon.
The first two shots were from one of my favorite places to shoot. I intended to get there while it was still dark, but I hit the snooze butting one too many times. The daylight was growing steadily while I sat up my gear. I finally took the shot below.
The more I look at this picture, the more I like it. I compared it to a digital shot I took a few years ago with a similar perspective. I have to say that I prefer the black and white image. I know the different formats and respective lenses plays a big roll in how a scene looks. It seems the larger the format, the more the scene takes on a normal or real look akin to how we see things in the real world. Along with the bigger perspective, I love the grain and imperfections of film. They add so much character to an image which gives it a timeless look. You can see the digital image here. After tearing down my gear, I headed to the roundabout. By the time I found my next shot, the sun was just about to rise.
The next two images were shot on the square in Columbia, Tennessee. They were shot with my Olympus OM1 on Ilford Delta 400.
The following images are random snap shots taken at my in-laws’ on Christmas Eve. These shots are a combination of Ilford Delta 3200 shot with my Mamiya 645 1000s and Ilford Delta 400 shot on my OM1. Some of the shots from the OM1 are a bit soft. I had to keep the aperture wide as there was not a lot of light available. It’s hard to take a group shot at low f-stops and keep everyone in focus. Things were better shooting at ISO 1600 with the Mamiya. I was able to increase my depth of field. This resulted in sharper images. I actually prefer Delta 3200 in this situation. The shots are not the greatest but given the conditions, they were not that bad.
I hope you enjoyed the images. Stay tuned. My next two posts will have more Delta 400 images from the same roll. Thanks for reading!
