Guess what happens when you use Kodak Ektar 100 film when you want to take a late afternoon super back-lit shot at the beach? It turns purple. Kodak Ektar does not like to be over exposed, even a little, or it will turn your lovely blue sky purple. 

Well, actually I have yet to find anything on any forums that look quite as purple as this, they usually just have a purple tint. Of course, when I do things wrong I don’t mess around!! 

I do want to point out that I did not develop this at home being that it’s color film. While it is purple, the negative is clean and free of weird chemical marks, water spots and scratches. This is both great and depressing because I still am struggling to get a nice clean negative from my home batches…..
