You can only wait so long for a company to deliver your order! So having given up on ever receiving my order of darkroom chemicals and equipment, I decided to take a different path.

I discovered some premixed C41 chemicals, and a daylight developing tank from the 70’s, and decided these could be an easier solution for me to dabble in developing films taken on my La Sardina lomography camera. Continue reading

Who, What, Where, When?

Who, What, Where, When?

This is what I asked myself when I came across three rolls of undeveloped film.

No cannisters were protecting them, and they were out on the side amongst papers to be filed! I could not remember anything about them, so it was time to get them processed. Unfortunately I’m still waiting for my order of equipment, but that’s another story!

Here are some of the more interesting results I found having scanned in the negatives. Continue reading

Many years ago, I took a short course in photograph. At that time, I was new to SLR cameras, and processing film.

These images are scans of the negatives I processed from a day trip to the City of St Albans. Continue reading

Hate waiting…

With film processing becoming a dying facility in my local town, the first two films I took were developed at the Lomography Shop near Spittalfields Market. I have since put another two films through my La Sardina, with another on the go, as well as one in my SuperSampler!

Having researched online and locally, it became clear that I wasn’t going to find anywhere to process my films and leave the negative strip intact, unless I wish to pay to travel, and park, and then wait around… each time I finish a film. Or post the film off and put my trust in the postal system… and then wait! As a result I ordered some ‘darkroom’ equipment and chemicals to ‘give it a go’ myself! That was last Sunday!

Well… they promised delivery in 3-5 days! But then I received an email to say that some items were out of stock and they couldn’t tell me how long it would take to get them in!!! Not amused!!!

I contact them and I’ve now been told they should be able to get my order out next week… but I hate waiting and I want to play!!
