Developing Adventures – My First Time Shooting Fujifilm Neopan Acros 100 II Film

I… Continue reading Developing Adventures – My First Time Shooting Fujifilm Neopan Acros 100 II Film

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
