My forgotten rolls of colour film

Last night I tried c41 processing at home.  I found it to be much faff and less enjoyable than black and white processing, but this morning, after processing more rolls, I think I have the process down.

I have the BelliniFoto Monopart C41 Kit from nik & trick. It features a developer, a bleach, fixer and a stabiliser to wash with. The main differences from a black and white process are the temperatures, which are much higher at 38c, and with this kit there are no water washes.

My main reason for getting a c41 kit was to finally process old colour films and to try the process. I stopped mostly shooting colour film towards the end of 2014 and started experimenting with black and white films, so there are a few colour films hanging about waiting for development.

The following is a complete 120 roll of ektar that I exposed with a holga pinhole camera on a trip to kent, 2015.

The following are the best bits from 2 rolls of agfa vista (re-branded fuji stuff) spanning 2014-15, featuring two camping trips. I think they were shot with a contax 139q, and a Carl Zeiss Planar T* 50mm f/1.7.

It looks like a tumblr blog, is that still a thing?

Currently burning more agfa vista 200 in my oly mju ii. I want to see what a freshly exposed pushed film will be like.

Stuff I saw – One nighter camping

Before I even owned a professional digital camera, I would take an slr -a canon ae1 and later a contax 139q camping. I was quite successful within the tumblr crowd with this kinda esthetic inmyhammock.tumblr.com/post/90838678008. However, for many reasons too long to list, I became disheartened with this type of locational photography that appealed to the tumblr kids and went in the opposite direction; I took up black and white/monochrome work.

Last weekend I decided I would try to revisit this type of photography with my xpro1. Despite being a one nighter, it was a minor success with a handful of snapshots and plenty of new in-jokes/stories such as Töm getting lost in the woods for an hour in the night.

Photos were taken with the xpro1 and standard 35mm 1.4.
