My daughters old Irish dancing shoes caught my eye yesterday. Black and white conversion in Silver Efex Pro 2.
Todays shot is in colour as you no doubt can see by now. I was going to make a cuppa when I just happened to look out of my kitchen window at a tree in our neigbours driveway. It was just before a stormy squall hit and the light was low and direct. It litt up this tree like a searchlight. I grabbed my camera and managed a couple of rushed shots before it all changed .Which it did,about 10 seconds after this the heavens opened.
Here’s another shot from the same roll. This time a little more high key. I used the same method with Adox adonal as my last shot.
I developed my film as follows at 20°C:-
Adox Adonol 1:100 (That’s 495mls water to 5 ml Adonal)
Inversions for the first minute. Then left to stand 29 mins then 3 more inversions and left to stand for a further 30mins. Stopped with water for one minute inversions constantly and then Fixed 5mins (T-Max fixer)and washed for 10mins.
If anyone is reading this and wondering about using 120 film, let me just say that 120 roll film is a joy to work with. 12 shots on a roll suits me in addition to my mind it’s a lot less of a fiddle to load a tank with.I have never had any trouble with jamming a reel, then having to start again in the dark. So go and try some :0)
