finally had a chance to shoot a few portraits of alice as a 20 month old. i’ll take her, even if she wants nothing to do with my cameras (other than look at photos on the back of my mkii or wind the film cameras). actually got a few cute ones during this morning shoot with her, but i’ll share them another day. i love being able to develop my own black and white film now. makes shooting film so much more exciting. shot this roll by noon yesterday, had it drying in the shower at 8pm.

my roll of neopan acros 100 had better with self-developing. it came out great. these were shot the day before mother’s day, at the park.

last week, during a walk with a few insta-friends, i quickly shot through a roll of kodak tmax 400 to have a bw roll to develop at home when chemicals and stuff arrived from adorama. so, last night we spent a couple of hours trying to figure everything out and we manage to semi-successfully develop. hit a few bumps along the way but it was my first time ever. loading 120 film in the stainless steel reel, inside a changing bag, was not easy – not without practice anyway. then, it took me way too long to (cautiously) pour the developer in the tank. that is probably the cause of the vertical streaks along the entire roll (more visible in some shots than others). lost a few frames because of incorrect loading on the reel. saved a couple of them, where the face of the subject is still showing (last two photos). overall, it was a great experience without any disappointment as i had set my expectations as low as “it’ll come out pitch black or something”.
now, i am going to try again tonight, with a roll of neopan acros 100 – hoping for better results.
