Ilford XP2

I shot a roll of Ilford XP2 for a blog post over at the Viewfinders.  I am in love with this film! I plan on shooting much more of it.  I don’t shoot black and white very often. The film shop I take my film to be developed takes 24 hours for color and a week for black and white. While I realize the humor in me saying I am not patient for the film to be developed, sometimes I can’t stand waiting the whole week. However, the Ilford XP-2 is developed in C4 1 type processing, which means it is developed with the color film. This means I can get black and white film in 24 hours without waiting the week.

I love all the grays this film produces.  It has a great contrast in low light without much grain.


Do you have a favorite film?  Please share it with me.  I would like to discover some more new films to shoot.

  1. Staci! I’ve missed you and your beautiful images on Flickr. But I trust you’re taking good care of yourself. Then I found you in the pages of Bella Grace–finding the quiet. Mmmm. And that led me here. Beautiful post. I love how you tell rich stories with your photography.

  2. Beautiful Staci. I agree, I love the tones of this B&W film. We have been unable to find Bella Grace anywhere local to me, but I’m going to order one. 🙂

  3. I do love the soft tones in these shots! I subscribed to Bella Grace last month and now I definitely can’t wait to see the newest issue. Congratulations!

Thank you for your kind words.
