Thaipusam in Neopan 100 Acros
Fujifilm Neopan Acros 100 is a black and white film. According to comments online it is renowned for its fine grain. I tend to push the contrast so it may not be so apparent in the images I present.
All pictures were taken with a film Canon EOS 500 with a Canon 50mm 1.8 lens. All shot at f2.2
I tend to shoot a lot of pictures from the back. It is interesting how much somebody’s back can say.
Devotee right after getting his cheeks and tongue pierced. A long bare-footed walk in the hot Singaporean sun still awaits him.
I like how his walking staff divides the frame in two. Devotees with heavy kavadis or people wearing the wooden shoes with nails would use these nicely decorated walking canes.
I like this film. It has great tonality. As long as you expose correctly and don’t blow out your highlights you are able to get some great black and white images and with some post processing you can really achieve the look you are looking for. I do acknowledge I process in a heavier contrast than others may prefer.
