Film Friday with the Leica M7 and Noctilux F/1

By John Tuckey

Hi Brandon, hope you’re well.

Hands down, most of what I shoot is digital. But I always make an effort to shoot film ‘in between’. I frequently screw it up, but that’s the point. I believe that screwing it up with film makes me a better digital photographer as well. Especially in the case of B&W which I insist on developing myself – double jeopardy, double dust!

Anyway, here’s just a few shots to share from a recent shoot with the lovely Frankii Wilde. Bar one, these shots were taken on an M7 with a Noctilux f1 at f1.4, the film is Kodak Portra 400, drugstore developed and scanned by me and then converted to B&W in LR5.

The one exception is the shot in the window, which is ilford delta 400 shot on a Rolleiflex 3.5f, developed and scanned by moi.

For those interested in comparing film to digital the corresponding digital shots are on my 500px gallery at http://500px.jrtvintage.co.uk, all the digital shots are with the Leica Monochrom and the same f1 Noctilux lens at the same aperture and ISO.

All the best

John Tuckey
