    Apx 100 has a special grey tone that looks sometimes very metallic, this grey tone is pretty much unique. APX 100 is great for skin tones and was loved by german portrait photographers. APX magic is in the grey tones. Rodinal and APX were made for each other 1+25 or 1+100 Stand are good dilutions for Rodinal. Another thing I love and loved about APX was the grain, APX is not a grainless film but what grain it has is beautiful and enhances the appearance of sharpness.

    The metallic grey tones, that's it, that is what you see in some of these pictures from Ellen von Unwerth. Special!

    I can imagine the greens in nature being a lot lighter with this film, and skin being slightly lighter than you would expect. Did you use a light-blue filter for portraits with this film? Or slightly underexpose if there was enough brighter white in the picture, well the filter seems less scary

    PS Rich are those leafs still green in the picture above?
    Frankly I do not remember.
