goodbye

As always, if you have questions, objections, worries or praise, and especially if you found your picture and want it removed, feel free to contact me. I will get back to you as soon as possible. You can also read my full disclaimer, if you are interested.

 

With summer in full swing I don’t really have any excuses and try to shoot every day. I’m also developing colour film and it’s much faster to heat up the chemicals, in part because the water comes out of the tap 10°C hotter than in winter. I still don’t get consistently even development with the C41 chemicals though, but the problem is much less pronounced now. I hope I can solve the problem soon or at least figure out where in the tank a roll is less likely to have this problem of unevenness. I also suspect that this problem might be due to the spools I’m using, because the problem doesn’t occur in every frame, but I’m generally not quite sure what to do about it apart from giving up on the Fuji chemicals altogether. Luckily most of the important colour rolls don’t have a lot of sky, but it still annoys me.

All pictures taken with: Leica M6 + Zeiss ZM C-Biogon 35mm f/2.8.
