Earlier this week we had the biggest snow storm of the season here in Burlington Ontario, this all after we had some pretty great weather in the plus 15 range. The snow fell for over a full day and crippled traffic everywhere. It was a “Snow Day” so I decided to try and take a few photographs of it all. I wanted to choose a black and white film to capture some strong contrasts within the white snow and dark trees. I choose Rollei RPX 100 black and white film for this photography shoot and loaded a roll into my medium format Mamiya RZ67 camera. I put my Sekor 65mm lens on for some wider angle shots. I checked the website MassiveDev for development time which says using dilution B and Kodak 110 developer to develop for 7-9 minutes. This seemed a little strange having a 2 minute gap. I choose 8 minutes but I think I should have gone for the 9 minute mark since the shots were a little on the light side. Here’s the results of the snow day outing at Nelson Park in Burlington Ontario.
