This shot of Mike and the Einstein statue at the Griffith Park Observatory is fun, but the error of my processing ways is all over them. yuck.
This whole developing my film at home thing is about to lose my affections. More specifically, developing 4x5 film at home…35mm and 120 are more forgiving than large format.
Aside from the fact that my developer was a bit warm which resulted in the crushed shadows in this shot, it has taken me several sheets of ruined film to figure out that the chemicals are not able to properly agitate. The negatives have tons of artifacts, or lines of varying degrees of development, scratches, water spots and just general icky-ness. I know it’s user error, I never see these problems when I send the film out to be processed. I think my next step is to acquire a new processing tank.
