Dandelion II

Dandelion II

Here is another Dandelion. Because of the breeze I found one low to the ground and used my prone body as a windbreak. I must say that Adox CMS 20 is worth the effort. The negatives are practically grainless. I must say that my ASA dial on my Hasselblad has never been to such a low value before. In fact it’s the slowest film I’ve ever used. Other than that it’s just a normal process with a couple of things that are different.
1. I had to use a proper stop solution (Ilfostop).
2. You fix the film for only 30 seconds. I felt like I just poured in my T-max fixer and poured it out again.
Other than that everything else was the same as usual. I think that given an even better scanner than my V700 I could squeeze even more from these negs. But you have to use what you have. I have printed this shot for framing and it looks great so all in all I’m very pleased with this film. There will be other shots using this film very soon. But until then you can enjoy this one and the last two.
