Soundcheck on film

Last weekend I was covering a rock concert. I was shooting video but I found some time during soundcheck to shoot a roll of film with the Nikon F801s and the 50mm f/1.4 lens.

I had to push Ilford HP5 at ISO 1600 in order to get a decent shutter speed at f/1.4 and f/2. The film was developed with Ilford Ilfotec DD-X, an excellent developer for pushing films. Development time was 14 minutes at 20C. Pushing HP5 by two stops increases contrast a lot , and this is really a look I had always liked!
