question

When using this film, is a filter recommended?
Asked by: Michael
What kind of filter do you think of? This film, like any BW-film, can be used with filters. It is not a question of the film. It is a question of the result you like to achieve. I would always recommend using filters when working with BW-film in the landscape. Yellow, orange, red turn in different degrees blue darker and the own filter-color brighter. By that you get a darker sky (BW-film mostly translates the color blue not dark enough) or you gain contrast, e.g. between green and red/yellow. Depending on your subject this might be useful. I would be careful doing portraits. Red cheeks or lips are getting pale with a red- or orange-filter. Red-filters are the only ones you have to correct even using TTL-metering. Give plus one exposure. Please mind: you cannot achieve these filter-effects digitally afterwards!! Because if you scan the film you have already a black and white negative. Digital filters are only working turning a colored picture into black and white. The fun with XP 2 is that you can shoot it at different ISOs, let's say between 100 and 400. Best use it at 200 ISO (if the scene is bright enough) - this gives you the sharpest results, if the sun goes away change ISO to 400 within the same film roll - the results get more grainy. Then give it to the next color-lab (C-41 process) to develop. (In fact it is a color-film that produces black and white pictures.) Have fun!
