Sun's up

Shot with the Mamiya RB 67 and a 250mm lens. Early morning. The big white blob you see is the sun.
Film was an 2009-expired Fuji Superia.

When the wrong side of a colour film is exposed, it results in a reddish exposure. This was an experiment with a Kodak Ultramax 400, on a Spotmatic.

One from the files, shot earlier this year. The unique stones lined along the shore are as representative of the city as the boulevard itself is.

The whole process of development takes longer than B/w.

Pre-heat tank for couple of minutes.
Developer at 38 deg. C for 3 min 15 sec. Started the time as soon as the developer was poured into the tank. Agitated initially for 15 seconds. Agitated lightly every 30 seconds or so. Started pouring developer back into its container as soon as clock hit 3’12’

Bleach at roughly 30 deg C for 6 mins 30 seconds. Poured it back into its container from 6’25’

Fixer for 6 mins 30 seconds.

Rinsed for 3 minutes 15 seconds. Changed water few times and took reel out of the tank and placed it under running water for a bit.

Stabilised for about 2-3 minutes.

Dried straight without final rinse.
