30 Weeks, 30 Cams, Week 11: Smena 8M

as you can see something is on the pics but unfortunately something went wrong with this selfmade redscale. i changed in darkness but obviously the roll is screwed. can´t say if it´s my fault or the fault of the lab. tend to say lab but don´t know. try another roll with this cam. i knew it´s going to happen that something goes wrong. but i had a good feeling with this cam so i´m a bit disappointed about how things went.

    Sorry! It's frustrating, but it comes with the territory when we use film.

    Frustrating...... :-(( if you find out what went wrong, please share it. I am very curious about doing my own redscale, and I know how to do it, but I dont know if some consideration must be taken in any way in the developing procedure.

    Hope you will try again! =)
