Blog #184 CCC Disposable Film Camera “Challenge” Photo Walk

Reader Rating

📷 📷 📷 Professional

Cathay Camera Club is a local group of professional and amateur photographers that participate in monthly competitions and an end of the year exhibition. I’m into my second year with the group and its been fun and beneficial for receiving constructive criticism of work from a rotating schedule of professional photographers who function as invited judges.

In the spring, the club hosted a street photography photo walk using disposable cameras stuffed with Ilford HP5+ ISO 400 35mm black and white film. This will be the subject of a future blog. On that occasion, I shot my disposable camera and also shot my Minolta CLE and possibly my favourite all time lens the Leica Elmarit-M 28mm f/2.8 ASPH. If you’re going to be out and about and you tend to favour proper cameras, a disposable will simply not be enough. So a few of us shot some more film on our various 35mm models.

This blog will reveal some of those images. The film was Kodak’s very sharp TMAX 100 35mm black and white. A yellow #8 filter was used to add a touch of contrast and Bergger’s Berspeed developer. These tools make for a winning combination for street photography. Paired with a careful eye for action and composition, you can make some good or even great images to make into various projects.

Have a special event? Need a unique Hong Kong gift for a special friend or loved one? You can browse some of my prints in Photato’s Print Lab.

The light is always right.
