B&W Film Grain

Challenge #9 in the Pari's Series series. Hosted by Parinita Salian.
Challenge has finished
Nothing can beat the effect of film grain on a Black and White image. It coverts the photograph into a timeless piece of art. Film had a distinct advantage over digital when it came to grain, as digital noise didnt give the same effect. But with advanced image-editing softwares and plug-ins its possible to replicate the effect.

22nd place
From my first attempting at nude modelling, almost 30 years ago. Photographed with Kodacolor 400, illuminated with two light bulbs of 100 watts hanging from the ceiling and a nylon stocking stretched over the lens. The nylon stocking reduced the overall contrast and augumented the grain, this added to the tungsten illumination, with the use of daylight film, producing an almost sepia toned image, here converted to B&W. Exposure data unknow.
