Using Ilford Delta 3200 Film in Snowy Conditions

I had a role of Ilford Delta 3200 sitting in the freezer and unfortunately I didn’t have any other black and white film for a trip up into Rocky Mountain National Park and during a snow storm. I decided to go for it. Since Ilford Delta 3200 is actually a ISO 1000 film, I decided to shoot this role at 1250, but still process the role at 3200. I had a 6 stop variable ND filter with me to help cut down some of the light in the bright scenes and so I could try to do some shallow depth of field work as well.

Saturday Night in Denver with Cinestill 800T Film Stock

Cinestill 800T Film images of the Berkley Neighborhood in Denver, Colorado

It's a Minolta X-700 and I decided to put on the 35mm f/2.8 lens and capture a few images of the neighborhood, especially after the lights went on.

This film stock is a tungsten balanced color stock film made from the same film stock that cinematographers use, designed for low light situations.
