Yes, it’s time for our second installment of the one kid, one roll, once a month project. I loved going through the blog circle last month and enjoyed everyone’s beautiful work.
This month I used a new film called Ultrafine extreme 400. It’s a cheaper film that is sold on amazon, and I’ll be honest I really love it. It’s not grainy at all ( I do love grain though) and I loved the tones. I developed it in D76. I pushed it one stop. Of course I am not sure if I did it right and it required my math skills, which are not very good. I think that I developed it for 12 or 13mn instead of 10, I wish I had written it down now. I was happy with the result which is all that counts. the black and white developing charts really scare me and it took me 2 weeks before I actually developed the roll!
I tried to make it fun for the kids so I had them wear a hat. My second child hates photos and found a good way to utilize the hat. Agnès the Labradoodle, sat still and was happy with her hat. She looks quite noble actually, which makes for a nice change from her usual scruffy looks.
These were taken with my Pentax 645n + 75mm non AF.
I usually like really contrasty black and whites, but the softness of these appealed to me.
next on the blog circle is the lovely Tricia, you can find her post here: http://www.triciaboutelle.com/

Until next month,
