The dynamic range of the kentmere 100 film is not good. But it’s actually enough for street photography. Sometimes choosing a film is just choosing a style. If all the films are the same, then it is not interesting. Many people like the rough grain of this paper.
Talking about black and white film styles has a lot to do with processing. This film can burst out style photos.
It is not excluded that someone can use this film to punch out beautiful gray scales through technical means, but overall, kentmere does have a large contrast and a coarse grain. The highlights are easy to pass, and the shadows are too dark. Many people are pursuing this high-contrast style now, and I don’t like to shoot this style.
But the advantage of this volume is very flat. Easy to scan.
Kentmere is cheap and almost the cheapest entry film.contact: firstname.lastname@example.org © 2019 Zhao Zhenguo. All Rights Reserved.
