your mother …

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.

 

During my trip to Berlin in March I shot this roll and completely forgot about it after scanning it. The negatives were a bit more contrasty than what Kentmere normally looks like in Rodinal, because I gave it 15 minutes more development time than I usually do. I quite like the look although I’ll probably put in less agitation next time.

Today we’re leaving for a short trip to Bilbao. And like every time I go on a trip, the most important question is which cameras I’m going to take. So far I’m set on both my Olympus E-PL3 as well as my Olympus XA, because they are small and light. If there is still space and my bag is not too heavy I might pack a medium format camera as well.

All pictures taken with: Zorki 4K and Jupiter 12 35mm f/2.8.
Kentmere 400 semi-stand developed in Rodinal 1:100, 75min.

    Good work, Lilly. Nice lens/film/dev combo I think.

      Thanks shutteroo 🙂 I think giving K400 15min longer in Rodinal compensates for the low contrast issues one usually gets with that film/dev combination. I love it when when I stumble on something good by screwing up. I must have forgotten this one in the developer since I usually increment development time in 30min steps with Rodinal.
