Zeiss G 28mm
Kodak TriX 400 @ 1600 ISO
Rollei RHS DC
After a couple of weeks away from Lisbon rediscovering Portugal I’m back home fully charged.
One of my visits was to the Mosteiro da Batalha, a breathtaking example of Gothic arquitecture.
Gothic it’s all about light and color but, at the same time, the sheer scale of that Mosteiro is overwelming.
This recipe is a bit out of the blue as I can’t find any time for the Rollei RHS DC and pushed TriX. Dev Chart has a starting time for the “old” Rollei RHS and Trix at 1600 ISO of 9.5 minutes. Since the RHS DC is double concentrated I’ve used the same dillution of 1+9 and reduced the dev time to 6 minutes. More or less half the time of the old RHS.
The results are grainy, very grainy. Very strong contrast and the images are clearly missing some detail. I still don’t know what to think of this combination but I like the results. The images have a density that suits very well this specific subject.
