Roll 118

•January 12, 2013 • 3 Comments

Camera: Hasselblad 500 C/M

Film: Tri-X

Date Developed: 12.01.2013

Development: T Max developer, 5m 30 sec @ 22 degrees, stop bath 30 secs, fixed 8 mins.  Ilford protocol for spiral tanks used for washing.  Dipped in distilled water with ilfotol before hanging.

Notes:  Testing my new lens. Lots of cooling needed for chemicals today (current reading on my outside thermometer is 39.2 degrees) so ice water baths and lots of air conditioning were used. I was pretty happy with  most of this roll.  That doesn’t happen all that often!

Rolls 115 & 117

Camera: Yashicamat EM

Film: T Max 100, pushed to 400

Date Developed: 10.01.13

Development: T Max developer, 10 mins @ 23 degrees, stop bath 30 secs, fixed 8 mins.  Ilford protocol for spiral tanks used for washing, with additional sets of 20 inversions until pink dye was no longer visible in discarded water then a dip in distilled water with Ilfotol before hanging to dry.

Notes:  We are having a heatwave here and it’s a bit of a challenge to get a nice cool, constant water temperature somewhere in the low twenties when the water out the tap is 35 degrees!  – but, some ice water baths and air con and it was achieved.  They hang in the bathroom – which is not air-conditioned – to dry, and I have to say it was the fastest drying I’ve ever experienced!

Camera: Yashicamat EM

Film: Tri X

Date Developed: 10.01.13

Development:

T Max developer, 5 mins @ 22 degrees, stop bath 30 secs, fixed 8 mins.  Ilford protocol for spiral tanks used for washing then a dip in distilled water + Ilfotol before hanging to dry.

Notes:  I will attempt to be better at keeping up with this in the new year.

Roll 108

•July 23, 2012 • 12 Comments

Camera: Hasselblad 500 C/M

Film: T Max 100

Date Developed: 23.07.12

Development: T Max developer, 9 minutes at 21 degrees (including one additional minute for compensation for developer exhaustion), stop bath 30 secs, fixed 8 mins.  Ilford protocol for spiral tanks used for washing, with additional sets of 20 inversions until pink dye was no longer visible in discarded water.

Notes:  Turns out I’m not that great at keeping up with this.

I was happy with this roll.  I’m thinking about doing a month of one camera, one film for August.  I was thinking it would be Hasselblad + Tri-X 400, but this roll makes me lean towards maybe making it TMax 100.

Roll 95

Camera: Hasselblad 500 C/M

Film: T Max 100

Date Developed: 25.03.2012

Development: T Max developer, 8min  @ 23 degrees (including 1 extra minute for developer exhaustion), stop bath 30 secs, fixed 8 mins.  Ilford protocol for spiral tanks used for washing, with additional sets of 20 inversions until pink dye was no longer visible in discarded water.

Notes:  I love developing so much more on days where the weather is just right and I don’t have to worry about cooling down the solutions or blasting the air conditioner so I can get the films loaded onto the reels.

Camera: Hasselblad 500 C/M

Film: T Max 100

Date Developed: 16.01.12

Development: T Max developer, 6 and a half minutes @ 24 degrees, stop bath 30 secs, fixed 8 mins.  Ilford protocol for spiral tanks used for washing, with additional sets of 20 inversions until pink dye was no longer visible in discarded water.

Notes:  Another two together – I processed them one after the other and there are images shared across the two.  The lovely, happy time of holidays is about to end so I imagine I will slow down now, but hopefully not as much as last year : )
