Photographing Iceland at Night

With such little sunlight hours, especially in the winter, Iceland provided the perfect opportunity to try out some light-sensitive film. Using my trusty Pentax filled with Ilford Black & White (3200 iso) film I set out to capture Icelandic life after dark.


I’m really impressed with how the film performed, especially in daylight as its built for darkness. When using film with an iso as high as 3200 its always going to have some noise, but I think this creates a fitting aesthetic. The Pentax also adapted well to the conditions, the cold didn’t affect it and the ‘bulb’ function worked well allowing me to capture the northern lights. I’ve got hundreds more photos to scan, edit and upload, follow me on Instagram to keep updated with my photography adventures @madisonbeachphotos
