35mm film review: Agfa APX 400
My name is Andrew, and I am a fine art destination wedding photographer in Italy (Lake Como, Amalfi). I am also the author of the book in Lithuanian language: "The Analogue Film Photography in XXI century", which is a PDF book available for free download HERE. I also shoot 35mm film on the weddings, but mainly B&W. In this article, I will share with you some thoughts on working with Agfa APX 400 35mm film. You can also support my blog by donating 1-2 euros to my PayPal account. I don't need your money, but a bit of attention, to better understand if these articles are fun to read or not. Thanks to all who donate. All this money I forward to various charities that help children with cancer.
I have already written an article about Agfa APX 100 and color film Agfa Vista 200 and to be honest - I liked that film a lot. In all cases, this is definitely an old-style-look film that has its own taste of time. None of those was grainless, digital looking and so on. Same is applied to Agfa APX 400 - it does look quite vintage, quite grainy, but sharp and contrasty enough. I would not use that film for portrait photography though: it has some strange look on faces, but taking pictures of objects - well, this is a great film overall. Sharing with you some images taken for my book on Analogue photography, see the details, zoom in, and pay attention to the portraits.
