T-Max P3200, also known as TMZ (on the rebate, or edge of the film), is a film I only very occasionally love. Pushing Tri-X is usually a better solution for me when I’m shooting in low light. But every once in a while I look at the pile of TMZ I still have, shrug my shoulders, and let ‘er rip.


I took this with a Ricoh GR1 and developed it in Rodinal (my first time developing TMZ in Rodinal). It’s perfect.


Aires Viscount (old Japanese fixed-lens rangefinder).


Focus group. Canon L1 rangefinder. I don’t recall the lens. 


Total dish. This bar was my spot to experiment with low-light photography. Tower Type 3 and Cosina-Voigtlander Ultron 28mm f/1.9. Probably developed in Xtol.

The more combinations of film, developer, lens, and camera that I try, the more I realize it’s just about the picture. Would I love the photo at the top of this post had I taken it with Superia 800? Maybe not quite as much, but yeah, I would still love it.
