After having worked mostly in Digital for the past few years, I find myself going back to my roots and shooting on black and white film almost exclusively. At the moment I’m using Fuji Neopan 100 Acros, Fuji Neopan 400, Ilford FP4+, Ilford PAN-F films, but my absolute favourite is ADOX CHS ART 25 film for both 135 and 120 format.
