This is a photographer friend of mine, David Sumner. This was taken last weekend in his home in the Outer Sunset. I pushed the film to ISO 2500. The development in Xtol goes from 6.5-7 minutes to 12 minutes. It seems to hold up pretty well.
David showed me a book by Herman Leonard‘s photography, which was a visual catalog of iconic Jazz artists. Quite amazing work. It’s quite something when you integrate one passion with another. I guess it’s not unlike taking portraits of people you know.
This 8×10 Portrait project is almost taking on a life of its own. There’s a momentum building. Something tells me I should build up my stock of 320TXP a bit more.
I do 1200 dpi scans of these prints. The detail is pretty awesome, as you can see from this full sized crop below. You can make out details in the atrium outside, in the reflection in David’s glasses.
