Developing Adventures – Getting Agitated

I don’t consider this a complete disaster, but it was an experiment gone wrong so I thought I’d share. I brought along my Yashica Electro on a long distance doctors appointment as my “emotional support camera” loaded with Kentmere Pan 400 film. I have used and developed this film before with no issues. Here’s a… Continue reading Developing Adventures – Getting Agitated

Developing Adventures – Double-X in D96

In this Developing Adventure, I developed a roll of Cinestill Double-X in D96 B&W Motion Picture Developer. I shot it with my Mamiya 645 at ISO 200.

At over $10 a roll… Continue reading Developing Adventures – Double-X in D96

Developing Adventures – Bergger Pancro 400

In this Developing Adventure, I shot and developed my first roll of Bergger Pancro 400. I see my friend Bill Smith shooting with it often on his photo blog and really like the look. It almost has the same classic television look of Double X. If you read my article on Eastmans Double X film… Continue reading Developing Adventures – Bergger Pancro 400

Developing Adventures – Mishaps in Processing

I started developing my own black and white film earlier this year after sending it out to a lab started to get a little bit too expensive for me.

Developing Adventures – Lomography Berlin Kino 400

When I first started shooting film again, a nice guy that works for Lomography sent me a box of Lomography films and cameras he wasn’t planning on using. One of which was Lomography Berlin Kino 400. I put the films in the fridge, because he said they may be expired, and I forgot about a… Continue reading Developing Adventures – Lomography Berlin Kino 400

Now that I am processing my own color film as well as my black and white stocks, I like having films that can all be developed together. The load of processing all of my own film has been really getting to me and… Continue reading Developing Adventures – Pushing Ilford XP2 400 to 800

In this Developing Adventure, I will share my results pushing Arista EDU 400 to 800. In my Arista EDU article, I spoke about this film being similar to Fomapan.

Now… Continue reading Developing Adventures – Pushing Arista EDU 400 to 800

Developing Adventures – Pushing Kentmere Pan 400 to 3200

I have pushed Kentmere Pan 400 in previous articles and was happy with my results. It resembles Ilford HP5 400 film in contrast and grain. However, after my results with Kentmere pushed to 1600, I had a feeling that pushing it any further wouldn’t reap very good results, but I wanted to see for myself.… Continue reading Developing Adventures – Pushing Kentmere Pan 400 to 3200
