Cinestill50-8

Incidentally, there are two things you need to be aware of today:

  • Iftimestoodstill just turned 2!  (Ah yes, the “terrible twos…”).  I previously thought it was the 15th of March.  Looking back, it was actually the 15th of February.  Because I missed the party, we will be holding it today!  99,180 Views and 2, 265 CommentsThanks everyone for your ongoing support!!  It is a pleasure having you here, and sharing in our lives.
  • In celebration, yesterday I ruined my first roll of color film.  (Yay!)

Trying to be extra smart (the chemicals were nearly expired…) I decided to put the 35mm roll in the large tank.  Unfortunately I forgot to replace the dark middle spindle with the LONG replacement.  I got the film in, twisted on the funnel, and pulled it out of the bag.  To my horror and surprise, I was staring down at the white plastic film reel.

EEEEEEEEK!!!

I quickly covered up the hole, and threw the canister back in the bag.  I knew they were likely ruined, but decided to replace the proper spindle and try and develop them anyway.

As it turns out, I am extremely glad I did.

This is Cinestill 50D (Daylight balanced cinema film).  The final three were taken indoors at ISO 50, which was a bit of a feat.

Love ’em, or hate ’em (I am actually going to have to insist that you “love ’em” because I do…) I think they have a certain feeling of “Joy and Sunshine”.

😉

Despite their “Instagram-y-ness” I hope you enjoy.
