Petra & Sigi using View Camera and Film, (First part of the picture)

Film Development

So I finally decided to get the darkroom finished, everything arrived beakers, trays and chemicals except the thermometer! yikes. I borrowed the garden thermometer. Letting it lie  in the water for at least 10mins, it could of read 24 or 26 degrees for the water temp, who knows…Nevertheless I prepared chemicals, nearly mixing up the fixer and developer.

  • Developed with Agfa Rodinal 1+15 (4 mins @ 25) using BTZS tubes
  • Film Efke 4″ x 5″ sheet film  ISO 25
  • Taken with the Cambo View Camera, 121mm f/8 lens Super Angulon.

Post Process
I could only manage to scan a third of the picture with my friend’s scanner (as it only scans smaller film, not really suitable for 4×5).
Some curves, levels, contrast+brightness in photoshop to compensation for the scanner ‘cos couldn’t be my exposure being slightly overexposed – no really 🙂
