I am a photography hobbyist that likes to dabble in different forms of art once in a great while. I am a hybrid shooter. I have recently begun to try analog with medium format and 35mm film. The main devices I shoot with are a Canon 80D, Nikon FM2n, Olympus OM-2n, Minolta SRT-202, Mamiya 645 Super, Kodak Brownie Flash Six-20, Fuji Instax Mini 90, and iPhone 6. I have started to do my own film developing. I also use Lightroom, Photoshop, and/or Filterstorm Nueue for post processing. My next goal is large format!

I love makeup artistry, Tamagotchis, cats, and technology. I have a Bachelor of Science in Computer and Information Technology, so my artsy side is just for fun. :)

Nature photography is probably my favorite. My cats are constantly in front of my lens.
It was Delta 3200 that really started me on this track of experimentation. Delta 3200 is a gorgeous film that I am really beginning to love. I know many photographers prefer the traditional grain over t-grains, but there is something about a fine, t-grain at a high iso that just sings. The unfortunate part of Delta 3200 is the price. At $9.29 per 35mm roll on BH, it's not a film most would be able to queue up often. This makes it hard for photographers like me that do not get much time in bright light. I googled some sample shots of HP5+ being pushed to see what the possibilities might be for getting close to 3200. I knew I was in for some intense contrast, but with HP5+ going for $5.19 a roll, it was definitely worth a try. This is especially so, since I find Delta 3200 is merely "ok" in my personal preference at box speed. It truly shows its beauty at 1000-1250 EI developed normally. 

So I did my first attempt at pushing HP5+ to 3200, and I have to say that I am much more pleased with the results than I thought I would be. It is very contrasty, but I do like some extra contrast at times. I think this method will really help in low-light pinches where I still want to utilize film over digital. I have to be pretty close on my metering. It is really easy to block up your blacks at a three stops push. I think this is the limit for my personal tastes in 35mm format. I am really tempted to push a roll of it in 120 to 6400. Check out some examples of this experiment below. These were all developed in DD-X 1+4 for 14.5 minutes at 75 degrees.
