Kodak discontinues TMax P3200 TMZ film :(

British Journal Of Photography

Sad news. The film is the one I use every week, my nocturnal companion...oh well

Wednesday in Little Havana


This had been taken with Kiev 4AM + 35mm Jupiter f/2.8 lens -- one of the few the soviet era setups I have. Came to like this cruel piece of machinery after some trial and error.

Ocean drive's nights in September


The film has its limits; when the light is as weak as it usually is at the Ocean at night its failing to record anything at all, even at the sensitivity as high as 12500.
Still, people at night are open as never during the day and I just keep shooting, hoping for the sudden glimpse on the subject, just like in the picture above and below...
