It was my first experience with this type of film, I experimented in the studio with a model on the piano forte, I used only a point of light to my right to create the shadow, here I used the camera Holga Pinhole WPC 120 I can say that you can get good results the development I stuck to the classic method, as illustrated by the video I found on the net

Be creative

If you are looking for something a bit different, this is a great film to explore. Focus on the lines of your subject, strong graphics, and forget about midtones. Developing is easier than you may think. I use slightly older paper developer and have found that a clip at each end makes it easy to handle in the darkroom. I also put the developer in a narrow long plant tray which ensures even development. To flatten it once it is dry, I put it for a few hours between glass sheet. And then the fun can begin in the darkroom.

Texture and contrast

Washi W is a high contrast film on textured Japanese paper. You get 16 exposures on 135 but a full roll of exposures on 120. The exposure latitude seems to be narrow and the mid tones seem to drop out, and that’s even with giving it plenty of light. Developing the film accentuates the papers texture as it tends to wrinkle as it dries.

Leaning into this, when capturing images look for strong graphic elements, silhouettes and shapes, and be prepared to lose the midtones. Don’t be afraid of negative space and blowing the highlights, which will show the papers texture rather than being an ugly blank space.

Home developing can be in trays or in Film Washi’s special feels.
