potential cindarella

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.

 

Again a late post from me, because I was actually travelling  today and didn’t have enough time to edit the pictures I wanted to show you. These were taken last week when I was out exploring one of the closer neighbourhoods. There isn’t too much space for exploration left there and soon after I’ll return I will probably be able to move on to a different neighbourhood.

All pictures taken with: Zorki 4K and Jupiter 12 35mm f/2.8.
Kentmere 400 developed in Tetenal Ultrafin 1:20, 16min.

By some rather ingenious feat of intuition I managed to walk down a winding road to a driveway that had left me wondering many times.

That’s the road.

Here is where I started down the hill.

Lots of spots in Egia have nice views like this one.

At the end of this street there were some steps leading down the hill.

Notice the shadow under her bag? It looks sort of fake, doesn’t it? It’s like this on the film though.

Re-taking shots isn’t my usual practice, but this one has people in it! I had never seen anyone there before and during my explorations I walked past there many times.

Another weird mark on the film … I guess I can admit now that I under-agitated this lot and got some surge marks. I usually get over-development near the sprocket holes, so I’m actually thinking of trying to agitate every 30sec rather than every minute.

  • I love those captures of everyday life in San Sebastian. Which fits perfectly to the traditional film processing. And then there is something very special with the grains from the Ultrafin developer. My favourite picture is the last one.

      Thanks Otto! I’m glad you like them! The Ultrafin grain is quite special. Not as in-your-face as Rodinal and when the exposure is spot on, then it’s really very subtle (I guesstimate though). At first I didn’t like Ultrafin much, but that was mainly due to the wrong agitation scheme. I was definitely over-agitating, which ruined the tonality and increased grain (worse than Rodinal). After changing the scheme I’m now quite happy with it. I’m still fiddling around with it though, because I still get some over-development near the sprockets in 35mm. I’m achieving some pretty much perfect development results with Tri-X in 120 though. Great combination!
