Still Life and Motivation

I've hit a little dip in my creativity lately, not for a lack of desire, but just simply having too much going on that's affecting me.

My First Roll of Ektachrome and E6 Developing

In this Developing Adventure, I wanted to share my first experience shooting and developing a roll of Kodak Ektachrome.
