In the Bath

To anyone reading the title and expecting a boudoir image (or dreading a nude selfie!), the title of this post refers to my first time developing film with Cinestill Df96 Monobath. Instead of a separate developer, stop bath  and fixer, this monobath does it all in one step, and requires less rinse time (and less water) afterwards. I can see myself using this product a lot! The images below are from a roll shot in Niagara-On-the-Lake, that I had not gotten around to processing. Glad I waited!

The Last Roll

I finally got the last roll of black and white film from our Croatia trip developed. These images are from a park in Zagreb. All images were take n with my Voigtlander Bessa T and 15mm/f4.5 Superwide Heliar lens, on Ilford HP5 Plus film.

Shooting Film on January 1st

Every year on January 1st I go out in the morning with a film camera, so whatever else happens in the year it will still be another year in which I shot film. One of my goals this year is to shoot more portraits, so from the roll I shot yesterday I am choosing a portrait of fellow film photographer Alan Gaunt, who came along with me and Bill Smith for the January 1st outing.

Crossing Over

This image from a park in Zagreb, Croatia seems appropriate for my first post of 2020. One set of steps seems like the old year, the other the new year.
