It was only a matter of time. Maybe this is an indicator, and I should drop the thing in a toilet.

There are a couple Tom Thomson sketches at the AGO where you can see the manufacturer’s stamp on the plywood. 1917, same year he kicked it.

happy halloween

A blast from the past, some spooky stuff. Carlsbad caverns in 2015.

More than anything, this was an experiment to see if Delta 3200 could do it. It kinda could.

*Let me head you freaks off at the pass. Yeah, we knowww, Delta 3200 has a true ISO rating of 1000…blah blah blah…I metered at 6400 and told the lab to push it one stop. It’s. That. Simple.

Serious note: shoot the stuff at 800 if ya can. Great for indoor portraits.

The last of the climbing.

Finally some CatLABS 80 results that I like. This stuff is less contrasty than Acros; it seems to go from black to white more smoothly.

Developing with D-76 is definitely the way to go (over my usual dirty-Diafine). I followed their recipe, used D-76 stock solution for 9 1/2 minutes.
