Shot with Fuji GW690II Rangefinder Camera
In this video I’ll show you the results from my first experience using Wolfman 100 ISO black and white from the Film Photography Project.
I’ll show the negatives, the lab scans, a digital print, and a darkroom print.
And to test the film, I used my Texas Leica — the FujiFilm GW690 II medium format camera in several locations:
Scenario 1: the ghost town at Union Level Virginia where I had terrible, harsh midday sun.
Scenario 2: a sunflower patch on a gray rainy morning
Scenario 3: Landscape photography of a tree in a park in my hometown in late afternoon summer light.
About Wolfman 100
Wolfman is a 100 iso panchromatic film manufactured on a triacetate base and the negatives are really curly. Film Photography Project says Wolfman 100 has medium to low grain and high resolving power.
Here’s a quick look at my lab scans. It’s always a happy feeling to see that you got all 8 frames!
Now let’s look at the images.
I didn’t do much post-processing work on these scans. As you can see, the film and the camera handled that really harsh light very nicely — at least I think so.
As you can see in the last image above, I had a light leak or something on the last few frames of the film. I was really careful loading and unloading the film so it had to be a light leak or something else happened. There are streaks across all three frames.
Ah — the curly goodness of real gelatin silver fiber-based prints. I’ll have to flatten them.
I made some contact prints from the negative, and it’s really beautiful to see such a big image coming straight from the negative.
Well I hope this video is useful to anyone considering shooting with Film Photography Project’s Wolfman 100 film. I must say I really enjoyed it and I am happy with the results.
