Around the Traps with Delta 400.

My obsession with Ilford Delta 400 continues, this is getting unhealthy.

Sorry for the lack of colour, i’ll make up for it in 2013….I promise.

At the Beach with Delta 400.

This is by far my favourite film at the moment, the grain is really beautiful and the qualities of the film are fantastic. I tried stand developing a roll of it today for the first time so it will be interesting to see how it comes out.

I know these aren’t the MOST riveting photos but i’m currently in India so i’m trying my best!




HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!! – Favourites of 2012

What better way than to welcome in the new year than by dedicating a whole post to the year that has just past.

All in all 2012 was bit of a funny year. I got completely overrun by uni, which in turn completely ran me down which meant I hardly shot film (until the end months of the year) and in the end didn’t get as much done as i’d of liked to. Thankfully i’m off to India (in fact i’m currently there) for two months so I can hopefully rejuvenate myself a bit and get back on board with blogging for 2013.

I’d like to put out a HUGE thanks for all the people that have taken time to view and interact with my blog. Particularly those that have decided to follow Friends on Film by attaching me to your RSS feed or signing up for email updates OR clicking the little like button to the right of the page and keeping updated via Facebook. Also a big thanks goes out to Japan Camera Hunter for featuring my bag on his In your Bag segment which ended in a whopping and record smashing 2,515 views for the day. I’m up around 37,400 all time views now so lets try and push it up to 50,000 in 2013. Maybe i’ll have a give away when that comes around.

ANYWAY all the best for 2013 and I hope you (all my readers) have a great year ahead.

Yours in Film,

Duncan Wright

On The Streets – With Ilford FP4

Sorry this site has been so stagnant for so long now – i’ve been resting up a bit over the Christmas break yet also working frantically as I am going to India this Sunday!!!!

I finally have some images to post though and will make sure to automate some posts while I am away to keep this fresh. I unfortunately mucked up developing to rolls of film and lost all my photos a few weeks ago but just developed to more rolls today so should have a bunch of photos for all to see.

These ones are from shooting in the streets of Perth a few weeks ago. All shot on Ilford FP4 and developed at the local lab.

Abbot Triptych

These images are way back from 2009 before I was really in to film photography. All shot on a disposable camera as I walked around Newton Abbot in Devon, England. Abbot Triptych


Around the traps – Ilford Delta 400.

I’ve been shooting a few rolls of Delta recently to compare against Ilford HP5 which is also an ISO 400 film. What can I say, I love it. The grain seems a bit tighter, more controlled and therefore a little sharper. The contrasts and tones are wonderful. Would I choose it over HP5? It depends, If i’m going to be shooting portraits or landscapes i’d definitely go for the more controlled grain of Delta while if I was shooting on the streets i’d go for the grittier and larger grain of Hp5.

Here are some shots from the past few weeks all shot on Delta 400.

A few photos from a couple of rolls shot on the streets of Fremantle. All images shot using Ilford HP5 and a Yashica Electro 35 GSN.
