Got tired of autumn colors yet?

No, I didn’t think so, or at least I hope you haven’t.  😉

A couple of nice maples, perhaps? And an autumn view of a mirrored lake.

Enjoy!  🙂

  1. Hi. Would you share a few tips re using the Tetenal C-41 kit? Getting back in B/W developing didn’t really scare me; I learnt when a child with my grandmother, who had no electricity and, of course, no running hot water, and we made contact prints by gaslight. But looking at some discussions, the Tetenal kit needs a higher temperature maintained very closely, short but exact development time, so difficult to do precisely – eg, where does the pouring into and out of the tank fit into the 3mins 30 secs – and what about agitation? But you said you do it in the kitchen (as would I) so I guess you don’t use a sophisticated processor. Can you give a few tips please?

    • Absolutely! 🙂
      No, I didn’t dare to do it that way, I’m not that exact…. 😉
      I use water at 30 degr C instead, a slower process, 8-11 minutes (you can develop up to 16 film from one liter chemicals) and as we here up in the north usually have about 20 degrees indoors, there is so much easier to keep 30 degr instead of 38. I use the kitchen sink, fill it with 30 degr C warm water and put a cover over the sink, and it will keep it at enough temperature as long as you need. It is just the developing part that needs to be fairly exact, not the blix or stab. I bought a aquarium heater, didn’t cost much, and is working okey. I have developed 16 films per liter now two times, and the solution holds very long time. I think I had my first solution for about three months and my results were perfect, even the last rolls.
      So, just go for it, it is much much easier than you think.
      Good luck 🙂

      • Thank you very much for this. I’m going to get some Tetenal C-41 but have been looking for the best source; would you believe that the lowest price in the UK seems to be about £19 for the 1 litre pack but there’s one supplier charging £39 (!) and lots in between. Looks as though there’s about a 2 week wait for the lowest price supplier but that’s OK as I have a busy two weeks coming up. If I can get anywhere near the wonderful colours you produce I’ll be very happy!
