Large Format Film | From the smallest film company in the world!

Experimental film Washi produces 8 x 10 film,  The smallest film company in the world!  The #bridalportrait was quite a process, had to convert my Bathroom to a make shift darkroom for the day.  Thanks to my bride Robynn, for holding still long enough for me to focus the 8 x 10 camera sinar p2. With an iso of 12 in shade 25 in sunlight, um yeah ok.
