So much contrast!

I love this film, but this does come wih some hefty caveats. I love it because it produces some of the most striking contrast I have seen in any of my photos to date and combines this with great detail/sharpness. It's alsoa cheap enough film that you can experiment a bit more with it, without feeling like you're just burning a hole in your wallet. The downside is this contrast is pretty hard to tame if you don't know what you're doing, and being an ISO 50 film it's likely you will be shooting it in situations with fairly high contrast to begin with (bright sunlight). Personally I enjoyedthe madness of it, but it's probably not for everyone.

Washi S in a Minolta Hi-Matic 7S

This film is probably not going to be your every day, all purpose go to film but for the right purpose it's lovely. It is VERY contrasty and very sharp but also quite slow at 50 iso - not so slow you need a tripod in sunlight but not one for low light situations. I developed myself in Rodinol which tends to bring out grain but even so there is no visible grain in my prints. It's a film for a very specific look but I liked it so much I've sourced a 100m bulk roll of the stuff because I want to shoot it more.

Low speed Washi

Washi S 50 ISO is a lovely low speed inky black film.
I love the range of films and the 50 and 12 make every day things so gothic and change the viewers perception of images, be it landscape, architecture or feeding the chickens.

Great film!

This was my first experience with Washi, and all I can say is wow! I will certainly be trying out some of their other films, I got some of my favourite shots of this roll. I'd only been shooting for about 2months (Maybe 10/12 rolls of film) by the time I shot this so by no means an expert and I am thrilled with the results. I would highly recommend especially if you want contrast.

You can have fantastic fun with the S!

They say some films love light, but I think this film just plain goes for light or bust! I shot this in a toycamera, thinking the plastic lens might help give a touch of grays, details be damned! These were all shot at 5.6 with a 1/100 shutterspeed and winter being the season, light was hard currency and always quite low on the sky.
I enjoyed the challange and will be sure to try it out again if I get the chance. The ISO is better anyway compared to my usual high contrast diet.
