Deep blacks with red lipstick!

Washi S is a 50 iso film normally used for sound recording. As such, it's made to record a black sound wave on a completely transparent film, no grain and lots of contrast. Washi suggests the best use for the film is for street photography, and they may be right, but I had lots of fun with portraits and close-ups of things enveloped by complete darkness.

It's a partially orthochromatic film, and particularly, it's not sensitive to deep reds, as I sort of suggested in the title, so it's relatively easy to make the lips stand out from the skin when doing portraits.

I developped it in Ilford LC29 1+19, and found that it tends to curl quite a bit. At the same time, the film is so transparent that it's really easy to post-process once it's been scanned. I'm looking forward to printing it in the future.

All in all, it's a great film to try new things with, and to look out for scenes where a lot of contrast is called for. I shot the 120 version on a Rolleicord iii, have yet to try it in 135.
