With Kodak reviving one of their most beloved black and white films, Matt Day set out with a roll of Kodak T-Max 3200 indulge in some heavy grain images. Let’s see what he thought and take a look at some of the results.
I don’t know about you, but for me, there are few things as fun as heading out with a fresh roll of film in my camera. When I started out in film photography though, I was never sure what type of film to shoot, the differences between the film types, how they look etc. So I found myself typically sticking to what I know. But there’s a massive range of film types available out there, we stock a fair amount here at Orms. So today, I thought we’d have a look at some Kodak T-Max 3200.
Kodak recently decided to bring back the iconic T-Max 3200 film and says; “This film excels when shooting in low light or when capturing fast action. It is ideally suited for handheld street scene photography, night work, and in dimly lit venues where you can’t use flash.”
Personally, I’ve never shot 3200 before, so when I came across Matt Day‘s video on the newly revived T-Max 3200, I was quite interested to see the resulting images. So with that, let’s join Matt on another day out in his hometown in Ohio as he heads out armed with a Pentax K1000, a sweet little 50mm f/2 and a roll of some high speed, heavy grain Kodak T-Max 3200 film. Let’s take a look.
