I’ve been trying out Ilford HP5 Plus lately, developing it myself in DD-X and quite liking the results. It’s a bit too grainy for landscapes (for me) and is a bit overkill on sunny days. However, today I’ve discovered a combination that I really like – overcast, flat light, Leica M3 & 50mm Summicron and HP5 Plus rated at 1600iso and push processed for 13 minutes at 20 Celsius in DD-X. I’ll be posting more examples of this combo in the next few days.
