I'm nearly certain I have an old stereo camera around here that was my wife's grand dad's.
Ha. I have one of those somewhere.
Thanks, figured I'd probably get a vintage look with vintage kit but not sure how much my processing had to do with it. This is literally my first roll of Delta 100 and I expected a much sharper image compared to what I've seen online. Looking at the streaking on the negative and image, might have been tight using the squeegee, rinsed with softened tap water instead of DM, no doubt too agressive with the agitation, used D-76 stock solution rather than 1:1 but that's what keeps me interested. Many of the other shots had exposure issues, I didn't trust the built in meter on the Yashica and used a handheld meter to figure out settings.What I love about this is the fact that it could pass for a 60 year old print.
That’s a heck of a darkroom! Cool website too.I need to take the field camera out at least one more time.
Last time I used my dark room was whin I was seng a large collection of 4×5 negs that I contact printed 2 to a 8x10 sheet of paper.
I still have a large number to use on the project.
All of the photos used on this website were done in my darkroom. Fighter Squadron 31 (VF-31) - Torpedo Squadron 31 (VT-31) - USS Cabot - USS Belleau Wood - http://www.vf31.com/
The moody look is good! It’s a process you have to go through to get your exposure and development sorted out. Each roll gets you one step closer.So I developed a roll of film last week. I made a mistake in the developing and the pictures didn’t turn out very well. Considered it a wasted roll but decided to scan some of the pics and see what I could do with some editing.
Still not perfect and I probably made some exposure errors too but I kinda like the moody look.

Yeah before this my other rolls were pretty much spot on. This film just requires a higher developing temperature and I didn’t make sure it was right. Can’t be too lax when it comes to these things.The moody look is good! It’s a process you have to go through to get your exposure and development sorted out. Each roll gets you one step closer.
Except in the summer when I can’t get the water cool enough I develop everything at 68f/20c. Consistency makes everything easier.Yeah before this my other rolls were pretty much spot on.
