Fantastic morning light in Peaks. Love this colour. It almost looks like this picture was made on Velvia50 but no. This is Kodak Ektar 100 in its finest. Truly great negative film for landscapes.

Whats your favourite film stock?

The negative is the equivalent of the composer’s score, and the print the performance.

Higger Tor morning, looking towards Carl Wark, Peak District  2018 UK
Hasselblad 503CW f16 1/8s +0.6ND 50 mm Kodak Ektar100
Hasselblad 503CW f16 1/8s +0.6ND 50 mm Kodak Ektar100

Older summer morning shot from Higger Tor in Peak District.

I have been quite lucky with the light.

The golden light lit up the rock and mist gave the picture multidimensional feel… I’m quite pleased with this one.

Peter’s Stone, Peak District 2018 UK
Hassleblad 503CW f22 1/4s +0.9+81A 50mm Fuji Provia 100
Hasselblad 503CW f22 1/4s +0.9+81A 50mm Fuji Provia 100

Peter’s Stone is a circular limestone dome in the Wardlow Mires, northern end of Cressbrook Dale. This is where the last gibbet in the county stood and local legend has it this was the last gibbeting. A gibbet was a gallows used to display the bodies of criminals after their execution and this is where they were left until long after execution with their bones rattling against the iron cage serving as a deterrent to other would-be criminals.

I have used Fuji Provia slide film for this shot. I like slide film colours. Although Provia is not my top favourite stock I like to shoot it when I can.

Do you have a favourite film stock?

What it is? Let us know below!
