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

Developing Adventures – A Roll of Lomography Lomochrome Purple

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.
