We take a look at analogue film photography and explore the different kinds of Ilford film types. So, if you’re a fan of black and white film photos (and wondering where to buy black and white film), or if you have a vintage camera lying around, this blog will surely answer some questions and hopefully inspire you to create some remarkable photographs.
Does anyone still shoot 35mm film?
The answer is a simple “yes”. With a worldwide increase in analogue film sales, instant cameras are becoming all the more popular, and thanks to opportunistic hipsters rummaging through vintage stores in hopes of a precious find, it’s safe to say that film photography has made quite a notable comeback.
Film photography is unlike our everyday, fast-paced lives. Just grab an old 90’s point-and-shoot film camera and go out photographing for a day – you’ll find that taking your time and choosing your subject matter is all the more satisfying. There’s a hidden magic in taking your time to choose your subject matter, and waiting for it to develop – and when it has – the feeling of holding the print in your hand will seal the deal.
We hope this inspires you to try your hand at this honest art form.
Ilford B&W Film
This brings us to one of the world’s leading brands in the film industry – Ilford.
Committed to producing genuine, silver based, black and white film for more than 100 years, Ilford offers analogue photographers a wide range of 35mm film, 120 roll film and sheet film.
- Commonly used in chemical still photography, 35mm roll film refers to the width of the photographic film.
- Originally introduced by Kodak, 120mm roll film was a popular choice for amateur still photography. Nowadays, it’s a favourite of amateur and professional medium-format photographers.
- Initially supplied as an alternative to glass plates for large- and medium-format film photographers, sheet film requires niche processing.
