Examine the negatives, detail scans, and the raw unretouched scan from my new landscape photograph “Winter Grasses”
This photograph was shot on Ilford FP4 PLUS medium format film, also called 2 1/4, or 120 film. I shot it using a twin lens reflex camera (TLR). A negative this size allows for huge amounts of detail and resolution, and very large print sizes.
The final scan features a beautiful film grain, as can be seen in the detail image down the page, taken at only a few inches wide.

Medium format ‘toy’ cameras
These so-called “toy” cameras are an affordable and fun way to get into medium format photography. Always trendy, the Holgas make interesting shots thanks to their plastic lens. Look for Holga groups online for samples.
