the day it snowed

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.

 

At the beginning of 2018 I finished developing all my rolls from the previous year. If you’ve been following my blog then you know that it took me more than a year to tackle the 100+ rolls that I had developed. By the time I was done I had developed even more and edited 146 rolls in total. It all took me a very long time. And unsurprisingly I actually acquired another backlog while I was trying to deal with the previous backlog! I thought it wasn’t so bad until I realised that I had forgotten to update the stats in my clever OCD film spreadsheet. Instead of a mere 30 rolls I actually had 80 rolls to develop! Mind you, some of these will require me to shoot more because I need to collect more rolls to make the chemicals viable, but there were at least 55 rolls that could be developed right away now. Oops!

Well, this time I’m going to learn from my previous mistakes and edit as I go along. Last time I thought it would be more efficient to first develop all rolls and then edit them all in one go, but it turns out that this is a terribly monotonous way of doing things. I got really bored and frustrated! So this time I’m going to develop a tank, then edit the rolls and repeat until I’m all done. And like with the previous backlog I will share some shots while I edit. I already developed a tank of 5 rolls, 3 rolls of Kentmere 400 and 2 rolls of T-Max 100. Today I’m showing you some shots from the Kentmere rolls taken on the one day of snow last year. For context: In the years that I have lived here it never snowed. Not once. It’s so rare that even the adults have snowball fights when it snows here.

Pictures taken with: Leica M6, Voigtländer Nokton 35mm f/1.2, Kentmere 400, HC-110.
