Project 365 takes me places I never thought I would go. Like on a windy bridge on a Thursday evening when the temperature is below -20°C. Last Thursday (17th of February) I captured a night scene by Oulujoki (Oulu river). The exposure times were roughly 8-12 seconds.
Development notes: Ilford HP5+ was shot at box speed (ISO 400). The roll of film was developed with Rodinal 1+25 in 20°C for 6 minutes. The tank was agitated for 30 seconds and then twice every 30 seconds. Fixed and washed. I couldn’t get the drying marks off with a cloth. The drying marks are there despite the fact I used a wetting agent as a final rinse. I think I re-wash (and re-scan) the negatives at some point because I really like some of the frames.
And here’s a digital interpretation of the same view.
My most recent purchase is Agfa Synchro Box, a box camera which takes 6×9 photos. I bought it for DIY pinhole project but I may leave it as it is. It’s a fun little camera!
I got it almost a month ago but didn’t have time to use it until yesterday. I found an old German film and an empty wooden spool inside the camera. The film seems to be exposed, and I intend to develop the film some day soon.
First two photos in this post are taken with Yashica Mat EM on Ilford HP5+ 400 film.
I took yesterday’s 365 photo with the camera and here are a few outtakes too. The 6×9 photos are taken on Fuji Neopan Acros 100 film.
I live on earth although there are two moons in the photo below. I don’t know how it happened but I exposed the frame twice.
Development notes: both of the films were developed with the following recipe. Kodak HC-110 developer, dilution B (1+31) in 20°C for 5 minutes. Agitated for 30 seconds and then twice every 30 seconds. Fixed and washed.
I should use the Welta Weltax folding camera more. The only thing slowing me down is the lack of range finder — you have to guess the focusing distance. It was my first time I pushed Ilford HP5+ film with Kodak HC-110 developer.
Development notes: the 2-stop push for Ilford HP5+ 400 film was achieved with Kodak HC-110 developer (dilution B). Development time 11 minutes in 20°C. Agitated for 30 seconds and then 10 seconds every minute. Approximately 5 inversions during every cycle. Fixed and washed.
