Museum of Appalachia’s varied textures and interesting historical objects make it a perfect candidate for black and white film
Hey everybody in this video I’m trying out a roll of medium format Fomapan 100 Classic black and white film. And to shoot it I’m going to the mountains of East Tennessee at a working farm museum called the Museum of Appalachia.
Museum of Appalachia is curated so of course it’s staged to a certain extent, but I love all the rich textures and fascinating, historic tools and objects scattered around.

About Fomapan 100 Classic Film
Fomapan film has been manufactured by Foma in what is now called the Czech Republic since 1921.
They make a variety of photographic films, along with papers and chemistry, and they also produce dental and industrial X-ray films.
Fomapan 100 Classic is a panchromatic black and white negative film rated at ISO 100. This film is characterized by high resolution, and the company claims wide exposure latitude — although some photographers say it’s actually pretty limited — and a fine cubical grain and it’s available in 120 and 35mm rolls, sheet films, and in bulk rolls.
Fomapan negatives are famous for being quite curly.
