To grain or not to grain

It often happen today that, instead of choosing digital imagery for what it has good to offer – that is cleanliness -, “filters” to add digital film grain are popular. I, for once, believe that shooting with an Ilford Delta 3200 not only is great fun, but also yields great results in terms of tones and (if the scanner is a good scanner, like the Coolscan,¬†capable of rendering a nice fine grain) nice and real grain.

Weird object, not in too great conditions

Just like the example above (an air vent shot in the beautiful Bow Lane in Durham), I have several other pretty examples of images shot in B&W film on iStock, here.
