I think every film (still) photographer has been in this situation… the wrong film, in the wrong camera in the wrong lighting situation. And it’s usually at a live gig.

The only thing you can do is shoot as slow and as open as you can… and to perhaps push the film. I really agonised over whether to do a traditional “push” development or go for a Rodinal Stand. I opted for stand development because I knew i’d exposed for the highlights which really suits stand development. I agitated only for 20 seconds at the start of development to minimise grain

Camera: Canon FTBn
Lens: 50mm Prime
Film: Fomapan 200 iso (Exposed as 400 iso)
Stand developed in Rodinal 1+100 1hr
