Expired Film, part 1

Some time ago I got my hands on a lot of expired films. 27 rolls, 2 different kinds; Fuji Superia Xtra 400 and Fuji Superia 100. Both kinds over 10 years expired. Now, as we're all used to shooting 36 frames per roll, these were only 12 shots per roll. Obviously, you run faster through a roll because of that fact, turns out, it's a much different approach than I'm used to. 

​​Because of the age of the film I shot the 100 films at speed 50 and the 400 films at speed 200. I have no idea how the films has been stored, and I noticed some purple tones on some rolls, an increase of grain and a decrease in contrast. Most of them turned out good though.

​The photographs here are shot with the Konica Hexar AF and Fuji Superia 100 rated at 50, developed normally.

Photo Essay - Music photography

I'm a fan of photography but I'm also a fan of good music. This post features some photographs I made during the Danish Tønder Festival, 2016/17.

They are definitely not your classic concert, up front, in the artist's face shots, which was what I intended; keeping a distance, yet in a way documenting the heart and soul of live music acts from the position of music lovers, the audience.

 Music has had a huge impact on me since I was a kid, so doing this little project was very satisfying in more than one way. This selection is some of my favorite shots.

Ilford scans, 2018

These are some scans from a few rolls of Ilford PanF50 from last year. I'm pretty satisfied with most of them, and I'll make sure to show some more new work in these blog posts in the future. 

Ilford PanF50/Olympus Mju lll

Ilford PanF50/Olympus Mju lll

These three photographs are all from last year, southern Denmark. I mainly fired through the roll to test out a new point and shoot that I had picked up in a second hand shop, and to see how the film acted in my main machine, the Hexar AF.

Most pictures from these two rolls turned out fine, nice gray smoothness and perfectly grained.

Prints

I frequently get the question if I sell prints of my photographs. I haven't done that much in the past. Most of the printing I've done has been for the purpose of exhibitions in different venues.

However, I'm right now working on a set of photographs available for purchase. I will make a new post here and on Instagram and the Facebook page when the prints are ready, so stay tuned for that. 

In the meantime, people who are interested in buying a print of the photograph "BOAT" can go to https://superfineprints.com/products/henrik-hansen1 and place an order. The price for this particular piece is $60 for the 8"x10" version and $125 for the 11"x14" version. The paper used for this print is high quality, acid-free, pH-neutral archival paper.

Welcome

Welcome to the site and thank you for visiting.

I will use this platform to regulary post samples of my work - more tightly curated than the social platforms allow me to do. I have been wanting to get a website up and running for some time now, so here it is! I’ve been missing the opportunity to also show my images in a larger scale and overall in a better quality than social media platforms.

In the categories you’ll find series of my photographic work alongside notes, galleries with the Wadden Sea series, but also other work like my newest favorite thing: FILM photography. I’ll try to update the site and especially this section frequently with thoughts on photography, news and information.

Best,

Henrik Emtkjær Hansen
