I’ve been enjoying an explore of medium format colour recently. Although I mainly shoot on home developed b/w film, I fancied trying something new. I recently found a C41 photolab in Kings Lynn that could handle 120 medium format film at a fair price, and with good service ( Wolfys Photos ), so I ordered some rolls of Kodak Ektar 100. We’ve had some cracking light recently, so ASA 100 was perfect.
The main event that I’ve used it for was the Godmanchester Viking Festival, last weekend. The light was actually very bright – too bright for hoards of very hot and sweaty Viking reeanactors, but I did try my best. The festival itself was great. As were the very helpful historical reenactors. I do hope that some of them find my photographs online. The general public – even the DSLR crowd, were surprisingly thin on the ground, due perhaps partly to the heat of the day, and perhaps low key billing of the event.
Expect to see several here on this blog.
