UPDATE: Howto Develop Motion Picture Film

I’ve been experimenting with development temperatures for Kodak Vision3 films lately. My original write-up, found here, was using the standard C-41 development temperatures which worked well for Kodak 5230 500T. Kodak 5230 inherently has a lower contrast and saturation value compared to the newer Vision3 films. Vision3 films tend to mimic digital contrast and colour saturation, which doesn’t lend well to the development times for C-41. In my opinion. Over the weekend I developed a couple batches at 35C and

Why we do, What we do

I was really hoping this would work out, but unfortunately my day job takes priority

Opinion: Finding The Lens That Speaks To You

I’ve been debating this question in my head for a while. How do you actually go about finding the lens that “speaks” to you. No one just grabs a camera and says to themselves, yup the 35mm is for me. At first maybe. Maybe you grab that lens and you feel comfortable with it. But at some point you’ll get bored and more than likely that lens never sparked anything in you. You might then go ahead and buy another
