Week 4 – Rodinol and Robots – Arista EDU 100

via Year of Film – UNDEREXPOSED: Alternative Photography http://ift.tt/1xJVBiX

Its been cold here in Atlanta. I know, Laugh all you want. Comparatively speaking our “cold” isn’t nearly as cold as some other places around the world. And I’ll admit after living in Montana for several years I am still mostly comfortable walking around without a jacket. However its still cold enough that I don’t want to go outside in the windy-wetness-of-misery.

This week was all about experimentation. I tried to use all of the various lenses that came with the manual 35mm camera that I have been primarily shooting on. Not everything worked out exactly as planned, and it probably didn’t help that I was trying to shoot indoors on 100 iso film mostly without a flash. But I still think I did ok for the most part, save for a few focus opportunities.

This was also my first time processing with Rodinol, and I have to say “where have you been all my life?”. This is so much faster and easier than the caffenol process I am used to. I love it!

But without further ado, here are the images from this week. As always Tumblr/Wordpress users may need to visit http://ift.tt/1H0ZZR0 to see the gallery.

  1. Your results look good! Did you have any problems with the film curling up after you develop it? I really had a hard time scanning that film.

    I love Rodinal for the long shelf life.
