I need to do more shooting, and I think I’m going to try cross-processing more slide film. Among other things, I have some Provia 400F on my desk (expired September 2004) which should be interesting. This is from another roll of the same film.

Does this count as “something different,” or is it still a photocliché?
One of the first things I shot with my 50mm f/1.8 was this collection of daffodils. Shot at f/1.8 and very close range, the depth of field is almost nonexistent. While this is certainly a cliché, I tried to process it a little differently. Does it work?
My students developed their first rolls this week, with some success. Unfortunately, one of our cameras has serious meter problems and another has light leaks. This process has been a constant reminder of both how difficult and rewarding getting a working vintage setup can be.

This was going to be posted on Valentine’s Day before I shot something I found more appropriate on a number of levels.

Another fun title. The more I look at it, the more I like the results from my Tri-X roll from early in the summer. The images aren’t fantastic, but I like the character of the film. I’ll have more to look at soon, as my second roll from the summer’s D.C. work trip is now developed (one roll of T-Max 400, one roll of Tri-X 400). I hope to have them scanned later today and ready for consumption tomorrow.
Also, I have a cart full of Plus-X and Tri-X ready to go because I ran out of fixer this week and need to meet a $25 minimum for my order. I’m interested to see what the Plus-X is like.

This one was actually entered in a contest and did very poorly, but I still like it. It was the first daffodil among tulips I think. A nice Spring-themed post for September- why not? It still continues the theme in some capacity. Maybe. Perhaps yesterday’s photo expert just needed someone to give him one of these.
