Ilford Delta 3200

Following from my previous post Kodak Portra 800 this is the second part of the day shot on the beautiful Ilford Delta 3200.

This was the first time that i have shot on DP3200 and and to be honest with you i’m blown away by the quality of these photographs, the grain, contrast, quality and overall look is just stunning (especially when looking at the original scans).

This is truly a breathtaking film and I love shooting with it, so much that i have another DP3200 ready to be developed. I used my Sigma 50mm f/1.4 as i prefer shooting with a wide aperture to create a gorgeous bokeh surrounding my subject. Typically when shooting people i cycle between f/1.8 and f/2.8 however with the higher speed 3200 it can be difficult to reach this aperture unless in lower light conditions. I could of pulled the film which would have given me room to use a lower f/stop however i think the results of this shoot were fantastic and i didn’t want the grain etc to suffer. I will try pulling/pushing film at a later date. Technically the 3200 is actually 1000 iso that is set to push to 3200.

Thank you to my friends involved in the creation of this film.
