That said, I'm just out of the darkroom after finally getting some spare time to kill, and it's 01.32 in the morning. Time flies when you got stuff like that to do, but of course you know everything about that already.
Also I've had a few films developed some time last week. Most of them seem to have come out good enough for my standards, so that's great really.
Printed a couple of the latest negs this evening, but I'm rusty as heck to be honest. Made all sorts of beginner mistakes with both filters, apertures, timer and what on earth have we.
I'm sure it will be better at some point tomorrow.
I'm also working on this new darkroom timer. I'm not absolutely sure I can make it, to be honest, because it involves some sort of damn micro-controller-puterthing-programming... and I'm not too sure I can cope with it. We will see, but I might just invest some time into the thing as I'm also investigating the possibility of installing leds in my enlarger. In that case I need to program the damn micro controller no matter...
Anyway, it's not going to be a showstopper for any printing as I already got a very useable enlarger using the normal bulb and the condensers. Would be great to be able to use it as a diffuser as well, but as I said... we will have to wait and see. Probably for some time...
Nothing much more to say right now, as it's too far into the next day already.
I give you a scan of one of the recent films just for now, and hope to see you again very soon!
It's a lousy snap of a castle we've seen before, and the development of the film didn't flow well either, by the way. Got some sort of bubbles of foam inside the tank which obviously did do some harm on the film surface itself.
It's not exactly the end of the world, though.
Oh yes, we had a couple of grey days there over in Scotland. We're pretty used to it though, so no big deal at all. A nice pile of stone, this one!!
