Film Portrait with Nikon F801s and Ilford FP4

One more portrait from our recent studio session with films. This time with the Nikon F801s camera, Nikon 50mm f/1.4D lens and Ilford Fp4 black and white film.

I really didn’t expect to get so good results from a 35mm camera. I usually shoot portraits with the Plaubel Makina 67, and on the last session I also used my Sinar Norma large format camera. I was really surprised from the quality of the 35mm negative!

For lighting we used a Godox AD200 flash with a 80cm Octabox and a LED light with a white umbrella. 

I had not used Ilford Fp4 for a long time, and I really was stunned with the results. It’s a superb film with a classic look and I am definitely going to use it with my medium and large format camera for future work. 

Development was done with Ilford Ilfotec DD-X (1:4), 10 minutes at 20C, and scanned with the Epson V500 scanner.
