Pushed Ektar


This is Ektar 100 pushed to 200.  It was a huge turkey to try and get right.

Bit of a high-key look just to get rid of all the purples…and believe me, my control was fairly rigorous.

(…And I thought MF Portra was bad!!)

The next two I couldn’t even get sorted…so B&W they are:



In any case, my advice to you, weary traveller, is not to push Ektar to 200 and develop it yourself.  Your time is likely better spent elsewhere.  (Like cleaning the filter on your dishwasher, for example…)

    It seems it was worth the effort, I like the look for sure! Good luck with the sick kiddos, my brother has 4 little girls and it seems once one is sick it’s a ticking clock until the others are too. So, my friend, I wish you good luck this weekend!

      Thanks Jordan,

      I’m not sure it was, but I’m glad you like it!

      Anyway, we’re always on pins and needles around here when someone comes down with something…It brings concrete meaning to the word “plague”!

      All the best,

      Thanks Karim!

      In my (limited…) experience, the film is very exposure-sensitive; at least where my scanning is concerned. Perhaps a more sophisticated “film lab” would achieve more predictable results!!
