Well I haven’t shot any ISO 100 film for a while, So I decided to load a roll of Kodak Plus X from my secret stash into the Olympus 35RC with the newly calibrated range finder. It worked out alright but it wasn’t as good looking at the rolls last week.
Well there might also have something to do with using T-MAX developer instead of my usual XTOL. I used the last of the XTOL last week, and really running out of film literally, so I didn’t feel like mixing a new batch. Now another interesting thing also, when I decided to get the TMX developer from under the sink, i found out it got a hole on it and leaked, I bet you a mouse bit it open, or the plastic gave out since i squeezed the bottle pretty good last time. But I bet you the mouse is not going to bite another bottle open ever again, if it was from a mouse.
On the other hand, I think my Scanner is dying, it’s producing a purple streak across the scan especially where the negative is thin. Well not too worried about it I think I got my money worth out of that scanner. Maybe I will bang it around in the future and see if that fixes it.
Lastly, my print has arrived at Riverside, California today, for the print showing this Friday with the grand opening of The Dark Room at Division 9. That should be interesting, I’d like to hear the reactions/comments, if any, on my work. Especially when it’s a real print, not looking on those silly LCD screens.
I know the light wasn’t the most interesting, but we all know there are times for good shots and there are times for the rest of them. What can i do? Keep blogging I guess!
