2.0, the next level

Persisted development

Yesterday I ventured out with my trusty Bronica ETRsi and captured a few bits of Wellington on black and white film. It had been 6 months since I last took street photos and it was an invigorating experience. After taking the photos I decided to manually develop the film which was equally rewarding. It had been 6 years since I’d last done that. The feeling you get when you open the developing tank and you see that there’s something on the film is one of utter joy.

Here’s a selection of the 15 photos I took:

Honey, I'm home!

The Birds

I still have to get the hang of it a little. I had pushed the film from 400 to 800 ISO to get more grain and I think that confused me so I didn’t develop quite long enough.
Only one way to get better: more practise!

    wou dat ik zo nu en dan eens het karakter kon vinden om terug zelf spullen te ontwikkelen en een namiddag kwijt te lopen met wat echte pelicuul op zak !

    keep up the good work senor dekkers !

    groeten vanuit den anvers !
