back to darkroom
DARKROOM is open again!
It was great to see everyone -and- get back to work!
I had five 35mm rolls to develop and one 120mm roll that I didn't get to last night.
In the photo below...
you can see a 4-roll developer tank (4 for 35mm/3 for 120mm)...wow! AWSUM.
I developed 180 photos. Some were of headshots I took in the last month, a trip to AZ, and two rolls upon which I experimented with shots at night on 3200 speed film. I used a different type of developer for the three rolls at 400 speed film -vs- the two rolls at 3200 ISO. Diafine for 400 speed (6 min total for developing in Diafine "a" and "b") and then HC at 7.5 min for the 3200 rolls. I really enjoy using Diafine over HC because you don't have to mix it like the HC developer, and you sure don't agitate the Diafine as much either.
We will see....what develops...hahaha..
seattle roadtrip .. in film
Mmmmmhmmmm. I got a roadtrip to Seattle, for my birthday this summer.
When developing and printing from film, of course, it takes a wee bit longer to post than those in digital form.
ABOVE, is a favorite from the trip. You never know the frames you will see as you proceed with your camera at your hip. ("Carry a camera at all times!" is resoundingly good advice from my teacher and mentor, Mike Riches.) ((I am doing this more so than ever.))
Below is an absolute favorite that also came out from my Seattle rolls. I printed a photo of an alley, and kept the exposure and filter low to keep the faded-old-time quality!
I have even more to develop from this trip -and- film head shots too, but I must wait for the darkroom to open again for fall term. W-A-I-T-I-N-G. More fun ones below, and as always...
More to come..
Once in awhile, well, BAM!
