They call me The Filmdestroyer. Maybe they are right. To take care of my rolls of film is something that haven’t been doing for a while. I know that they haven’t done anything to me and always have treated me good but I just try to distract them.
This time I did what I normally do: take photos haphazardly. I had to travel by train so I was expecting a variety of landscapes viewed in fast movement. I had to take advantage of it . And it’s known that if the pictures are moved there is nothing to worry about.
The following steps should be followed:
1. Finish the roll.
2. Rewind it leaving a little flange (don’t put it all back inside).
3. Immerse the roll in red wine (the longer you leave it for the more destroyed it will get).
4. Go in the darkroom, with water a dryer and a black case (like the ones that sometimes comes with B/W film).
5. Pull out all the film, wash it and dry it (in the darkness!).
6. Roll the film without the chassis and put it in the black tin
7. Go to your lab and wish it luck to the roll!
As always, the time of destruction and the washing of the roll will be responsible for the final result.
