Olympus OM1 and Kodak film test

I recently bought an Olympus OM1; I am not "downgrading" from Medium Format, not at all, but I needed a light camera to carry on holidays or week-end-trips and bought this jewel from Olympus. Light and efficient, it is really quick to handle for shooting, and the 50mm 2.8 lens I have been doing these tests with is just gorgeous with a clean high resolution and organic image. 

I have been made some tests with different films (both in black and white and in colour) and different times in developing the films. I like best the results from Kodak Tmaxx 400 (the one I normally use on Medium Format, the two pics on the top) and Kodak TX 400 (the 2 pics below). 

But the most I used it the most I liked the heavy grain of the latter, in my opinion is the perfect combination with the lens, the chemicals and developing time I use and the style of my photography. And you? Which one do you like best?

Follow me! Film Photography on Tmaxx

I like pushing the Kodak Tmaxx in order to get more contrast and grain out of the film, just like in this picture of NoelĂ­, taken in Barcelona on my Hasselblad 500c/m

In my bed. A portrait of Anna on Kodak Tmaxx

There are very few subjects as beautiful as the woman body, on which light paints mysterious and poetic shadows. And there have been very few subjects which passed and posed in front of my camera which light has loved such as it did with Anna. From Catastrophe and the Cure series, this portrait was taken on Tmaxx 400.

Undressing. A black a white portrait on film

The ritual of undressing is, in my opinion, among the most sensual and beautiful moment to portrait. Taken on Tmaxx for the series Catastrophe and the Cure.
