Watch as photographer Matt Day explains a little more about when and why one might want to be pushing film, and what effect it will have on your results.


If you are one of the film shooters out there you might find this video by Matt Day interesting. Specifically if you are getting into pushing and pulling your film. As Matt says; “I am ALWAYS pushing my Ilford HP5 to 1600. It looks great, I still retain tons of detail, and I can increase my depth of field. But there are definitely some misconceptions about pushing film that I hear all of the time. Let’s talk about that”.

If you’d like to see more from Matt, he has a fantastic collection of videos on YouTube. A great source of information if you are interested in film photography, although Matt does use digital as well. You can also stay in touch with Matt via his Instagram page, Twitter account or on Google+.
