Ilford delta 100 - modern look, very clean, noise free, alot of mid tones!! very good high key, I would use it if I am shooting portraits, I have shot portraits on overcast light with fill flash and it turned out very very good, actualy I love this film after my trip to india, I would not mind using this film all the time
Ilford FP4 - traditional look, deeper shadows, full of mid tones also very clean, very good resolution, I would shoot evrything with this classy looking film, gives very deep tones, I would shoot street with this film if speed is not an issiu.
Ilford HP5 - traditional look, very very deep shadows, exellent night shooter! night shooter!!! I take this film if I am shooting low light! it has the deepest shadows ever! very very classy!
Ilford Delta 3200 - very grany film
I have shot couple of times at night, did not like this film at all! tonality is not that fantastic, grain is huuge and not much of a detail, I just shot neopan 1600, will develope these days and will update my thoughts
Kodak tri-x - very traditional look, very textury thought alot of details, I love to underexpose this film, I am taking tri-x if I don`t know whats going to happen, if I don`t know light will be enough or not, not as clean as FP4 or Delta 100 but clean enough to have flexibily of speed, I would not mind shooting street again with this film.
kodak t-max 100 - modern look, alot of details, small amount of noise, slightly flat, well well, somehow it feels that this film lacks mid tones, I don`t know, I have 20 t-maxs is my frige I don`t know what to do with them, probably will shoot some close up portraits...
Kodak t-max 400 - modern look, slightly flat also, but very good at night, I will take this film when I don`t want to waste Ilford HP5
Fuji Neopan 100 - contrasty, clean, slightly flat shadows, well that what leads to contrasty look, I would use this film for potraits also for street, developed beautifly in Kodak D76.
Well these are the BW films I use mostly, shell we switch to color? yes indeed
Now for color it is bit harder, I love to shoot slide but as much as I love it, as hard it is to shoot with it, very good color very high contrast but very small laditute for light and exposition, slight miss in exposition and you have no shadows...
Fuji Provia 100F - I love this film, it has speed, it is contrasty it is color full but its not sureal! I mean it is still balanced so you can take portraits with it, for street color photography it is an exellent film, (fuji leads to have more blue with green so images tend to be colder than kodak slides)
Fuji Velvia 50 - very very saturated, very very contrasty, good for abstracts and details, it is good for portraits to but depends on skin color, slow but very noise free, scanes perfectly and has amazing resolution, this film also hates overexposure, (fuji leads to have more blue with green so images tend to be colder than kodak slides)
Kodak E100 VS - saturated, warm tones, very positive look, actualy has more corrected colors than any fuji slide, I would not mind using this film all the time, just sometimes I need the cold feeling of provia and velvia
As for color negative, I have tryed quet a bit of them but I did not liked any! but one! Kodak Portra! yeaah! this film is amazing, it is as saturated as slide (well not really
) and it has very clean look! I love it and I can not wait for new portras to hit stores!
