Adrian, from my final major project about living statues – Ilford HP5@400 in ID11 1+1
For a long time, while I was at uni, my film of choice has been HP5, a classic 400 iso emulsion by Ilford.
To be totally honest with you, it wasn’t so much of an informed choice, as I only knew about FP4 and HP5 and I chose the latter simply because it was faster (FP4 is 125 iso speed) and I was shooting in available light, needing the extra speed.
At university we only had a kind of developer, ID11, and for three years I just shoot HP5 developed in ID11, happily ignoring the existence of whole of world of other films and developer combinations.

When I finished university and moved to London, I felt the urgency to do some research to be able to still shoot black and white film and to develop it at home.
constantly shooting film, but at what price??
I know that most film photographers would be interested in this subject, so I decided to share my findings.
If you know any other shop that sells analog photographic materials at a reasonable prince, please write in the comments and I will add it to the list.
