Experimentation is a large part of the work that I make. Besides striving to create something that is aesthetically interesting and able to raise questions, I challenge myself to learn new ways of achieving a photographic product.
What I did for the following selection of pictures was Push the film. What this means is that I took a standard roll of Fomapan 100 (ISO 100) and loaded in my camera. However I dialled my camera’s exposure in at ISO 400. This means I am exposing the film 2 stops above it’s recommended speed.
After this I also compensated the development time by multiplying the regular time for ISO 100 by 2.25. (in this case 8min became 18min.)
The result of pushing film is higher grain and contrast.
