A little table top fun with my Hasselblad 203FE with the Carl Zeiss 80mm F2.8 FE mounted on an 32E extension tube. Taken on my fav black and white film Rollei 80s stand developed in Caffenol for 50 mins at 20℃ with agitation for only the first minute and then left to rest in a water bath for 49mins.

Here’s the Recipe
Make one litre
Washing soda (Stabil) 16gr/l
Vitamin C (Santa maria) 10 gr/l
Potassium Bromide 1gr/l
Instant Coffee 40gr/l
Inversions for the 1st minute and then left to stand for 49mins
Stop and fix as usual

  1. Very fun indeed! Love chess too. I will save the coffee recipe for if I ever try photography.. and drink regular coffee in the meantime! 🙂

    1. Thanks. I’ve used Nik software Silver Efex Pro 2 and a little adjustment in Aperture to squeeze out all I could manage from the negatives in this series. I was surprised myself more much detail I managed to get from them.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Joe. I haven’t got a darkroom anymore either. I have a dark-cupboard in the cellar. I develop my own black and white negs and scan them. It’s a halfway house arrangement. But it works for me at the moment.
