Ilford HP5 Plus 400 On 4x5


A Gallery

  2016 May 6th    Galleries   Film



Ilford HP5 Plus 400 is a versatile black-and-white film that has great latitude.  In addition to 35mm and 120, it's also made in four-by-five and eight-by-ten-inch sheets for large format cameras.

Here's a gallery of some 4x5 pictures that I made with my 1956 Crown Graphic 4x5 camera.

Development was in Kodak HC-110 at Dilution B, using the equivalent of six minutes at 68 to 70 Fahrenheit.  Gentle agitation for first 30 seconds, followed by 10 seconds gentle swirl every three minutes. 

When I say the time was "equivalent" to six minutes, it's because the times had to be corrected due to re-use of the diluted developer.  At each stage you get a certain amount of depletion, and if you want good negatives, it's important to correct for that.

This one was whole-scene metered f/8 and a 60th for 400 film, then shot f/11 @ 25th.  Developed May 8, 2016 with the liter of HC-110 B at 40% capacity;  the standard HP5+ 400 dev time of 6 minutes was multiplied by 2.5 to correct for depletion.

This one was cropped from the original 4x5 area to a 35mm aspect ratio;  crop is probably about the size of a 645 negative. 




That concludes this gallery page of Ilford HP5+ on 4x5.  I hope you've enjoyed your visit.
