Lines and Grain

f/4 1/52, 34.2mm, ISO 400

Trying out the simulations on the X-T4 and have set myself up a dark black and white film setting with grain.

This is SOOC, what do you think?

An abstract image I know, but an illustration of what is possible.

Come join me on my photographic journey, a place where I share my experiences and my art as well as reviewing gear and covering my love of analogue and digital photography. I've been lucky enough to have several photographs published in various publications and exhibitions around the world. I work in the City of London, love to travel, and I am always learning new things. Support my work by buying me a coffee


  1. I’ve always been a fan of strong grain in high contrast black and white. This looks to me a bit like Ilford FP4 pushed to 200 (grain) or 400 (contrast). I think a ever so slightly courser grain might be ideal. With that said I’m pressed by how realistic the shadow fall off is for a emulated film effect. Hope you’re enjoying the new camera!
