Tri-X 400 - One Roll - Ben Whitmore - Project Dad

Peter Davison

At the beginning of this year, I set out my usual photography goals. Debrief the successes and failures of the previous year's projects and plan new ones. The biggest failure of 2016 for me was quitting a 365 project half way through, but the reason for that, without going into too much detail, was simply that the act of grabbing an image every day for a year wasn't making me a better photographer, it wasn't inspiring me to tell stories, it was merely a chore I needed to get done and the photos began to reflect that mindset.

One Roll - JCH StreetPan 400

Peter Davison

Peter from Ikigai shipped me up a roll of Fuji’s 35mm Industrial 100 – aka Fuji Color 100 – to test out along with a range of films he’d be stocking.
