Fujichrome Astia 100 + Rodinal!

2

Here is a short tipster about using Fujichrome Astia 100 together with rodinal! Hope you like it as much as I do!

There was a couple of articles on this theme half of the year ago. Here are the notes of chemists:
№1
№2

Some days ago I wanted to make an experiment, I wanted to ruin the film voluntarily. I decided to put 8-years-delayed Fujichrome Astia 100 (120) slide into Rodinal..
1. Dilute rodinal 1+50 (approximately: 240 ml of water + 5 ml of concentrate);
2. I had been developing the film for 12 minutes, the temperature was about 40 degrees;
3. I had been fixing it for 8 minutes.

The negative turned to be very dark.

I have mixed feelings about the result I have got. I have not understood whether I like it or not yet. Whether it is necessary to repeat it or not. Anyway, I had satisfied my strong desire to make an experiment for some time..

    I think you did everything right in the developing. Only the digital editing process still needs improvement. Two clicks in Picasa (1. turn into b/w | 2. one click optizing for exposure) and the 2nd image looks like that: https://www.dropbox.com/s/5devtnpkxyml9y9/optimized_picture… (sample)

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
