I’ve been getting through a huge backlog lately of undeveloped film which feels really good. There are times when I enjoy the back-end process of photography (developing film, making prints, etc.) more than I do the actual act of exposing film. It feels like I’m putting the finishing touches on something I’ve put a lot of hours and effort into which brings a certain level of satisfaction and a sense of completion.
This is another image from my two sessions with Devi. Despite the fact that the shoots were pretty short they seem to be the kind of sessions that just get better and better the more rolls of film I develop. I think I have two more rolls as yet to be developed and I’m expecting good things.
Photographed with my Hasselblad 500c/m and Kodak Tmax 400 speed film. Despite the fact that the scene was a bit on the dark side I’m pleased with the tonal range which is largely due to the fact that I stand developed for 45 minutes at a ratio of 1:100. Stand development tends to be the way to go in tough lighting situations.
