Red on Blue

In 35mm, Film, Personal favourites by Ivan0 Comments

Recently I’ve finally started to develop colour film at home. Having bought the chemicals several months ago I couldn’t get it going, you know, I had to make the chemicals from powder concentrates and for that I had to bring water to a certain temperature and in order to do that I had to warm water… ugh. Sometimes I felt too lazy to bother or just couldn’t find time.

Anyway, the chemicals are now ready and I’ll develop all my colour film accumulated last and this year little by little. Meanwhile, I really enjoy the results.

Seen above is one of the pictures I took at the swimming pool last summer and the way it came out reminds me once again why I love film. Shot on expired Fuji film plus almost a year of waiting for development, the picture has these dominant colors of red and blue which makes it either kind of cross process-y or somewhat impressionist.
