very cool!  i never expect to see photo-related stuff on craftster, what a nice surprise.

what kind of film did you use?  i shot a roll of 5-6 years expired kodak 400 and it came out all grainy and 70s-looking.

and hey i just checked out your blog, i love your yarn and photos and everything!

Hey, Denelle!  The pic with the EAT sign was taken on Route 30 between Grovertown and Plymouth in Indiana, so you're close!  Smiley  The icy bench was also taken in Grovertown (in my parents' backyard).  Other than that, the other shots were taken in random locations throughout Indiana, Wisconsin, and Ohio.

Rum, thanks for checking out my blog!  I started posting a lot of in-depth photo-geekery at my annex blog (the craftbangboom one) because I'm starting to get geeky about photography.  It's a little scary.  Smiley  The Kowa pics were taken with Arista.edu 100 speed color print film (available from Freestyle).  Some of the regular color negatives were Fujicolor.  The 220 film was Fuji NPS 160 that expired in March of 2003.  The greenish-tint cross processed film was Kodak Ektachrome E100SW (expired 10-2004), and the cross-processed film that I ran through the Savoy and came out freaking awesome was Kodak Ektachrome E100G that expired in July of 2005.  That last film is supposed to be super fine grained or something.  I don't know.  I guess that's what the G stands for.

In case anyone cares, I pick up most of my 120 sized film on eBay.  You can get great deals on expired film there.  Also, I've gone into camera shops before and have gotten them to sell me whatever expired rolls of film they happen to have stuck in the back of their fridge for pretty cheap (about $1 a roll).  I'm all about trying to get photo equipment and paraphernalia on the cheap, since it's kind of an expensive hobby.  Tongue

I love all your work. It's amazing. I just got done with my photography class, and I love how you explained everything because some of the stuff you mentioned I didn't even know what it meant!  Tongue But anyways great job, makes me wanna take up photography even more.  Cheesy

You are my hero for developing your color film at home. I've heard about developing color film with B&W chemicals...Once I get settled into my new place, I think I'm gonna give it a go. Have you tried dev. color in B&W chem??

Great work, btw. Wink

Hey, FairyFemme - apparently you and I are sharing the same mind grapes.  I tried developing color film in black and white chems for the first time today.  I used some Portra 160NC that was on a 220 spool, so I cut off a length of that and respooled it on 116 backing paper, since I was using one of my old box cameras, the Agfa Shur Shot (it's the one in the middle):



It's neat because you get sort of panorama pictures with it.  Anyway, I developed the film as usual using Kodak HC110b as my developer at around 66 degrees for 7 minutes, then stop bath and fix as usual.  When I took the reel out when I was washing it off after the fixer, the film looked opaque brown and I thought I had done something wrong.  It turns out that the film is just really, really dark when you do this (at least when I did it), so if yours turns out that way, don't freak out.  I couldn't even tell there were images on it until I hung the film up to dry.  My film scanned in with no problem, though - I think if you have a halfway decent film scanner and scan the film in as a color negative, it should be fine.

Here's one of my pics.  The only adjustment I made in Photoshop was to resize it and get rid of some hairs (I am the world's sloppiest photo-person):

That came out wonderfully. (Looks cold where you are)
I just loaded my Holga with 35mm and I'm dying to get out and shoot. Soon! Soon....I just have to figure out where I packed my gaffer's tape so I can tape up my Holga.

Do you have a DeviantArt or Flickr page? I'd love to see some more of your work
