Massively Under Exposed

This is what happens when you massively under expose your film. These images were from a roll of Ilford Delta 400 film that I pushed to 800 ISO and then developed properly for the push processing.  However, something else had gone wrong when making the exposures.  Either the battery in my old Mamiya RZ67 had died and fallen back to a default shutter speed of 1/250 sec (likely).  Or I had metered the shot and didn’t adjust the shutter speed (also likely).  But in any event, the negatives were very thin, to say the least, just a hint of an image there.  But as a testament to the strength of latitude that can be captured by film, I scanned them anyway and got, what I consider to be very compelling images.  Full of grain, character and emotion.  I hope you like them as much as I do.

best,
scott

Memento Mori

“All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt.”
