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. When I have a lot of of health issues happening at once I tend to get depressed, which understandably affects my motivation to do anything else. It's strange because… Continue reading Still Life and Motivation

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. This was also my first time using E6 developer, and I was a bit nervous because I know color slide film is not as forgiving as color negative or black and white film.

Developing Adventures – Kodak Tri-X with Kodak HC-110 and Ilford DD-X

I purchased Ilford's Ilfotec DD-X on a recommendation to use when I was pushing film, such as the time I pushed Fomapan 400 to 800. I've also purchased Kodak's HC-110 to develop Kodak films such as Kodak Tri-x and TMax. I just like the look these pairings give me. However, I wanted to see if… Continue reading Developing Adventures – Kodak Tri-X with Kodak HC-110 and Ilford DD-X
