Ilford HP5+ Black and White Film - IN COLOUR!

Updated: Jul 6, 2021

That’s right, I shot a roll of Ilford’s world famous HP5+ and got this colour photo… or did I?

The end result is actually not too bad really.

Well, the photograph you see above was shot on HP5+ film. It was taken at Trentham Monkey Forest, in Staffordshire, and I shot it on my Bronica SQ-Ai on Monday, and I used Photoshop’s Neural Filters to automatically colour it. In case you’re unaware, neural filters are simply a fancy term for the computer doing the hard work for you, in terms of editing.


I’ve written a previous post about replacing a sky in photoshop (I took a rainy night scene of Edinburgh Castle, and made it much more dramatic with a fancy sunset above it).
