Home Dev For The Mad Scientist!! Part 2


I decided a few months ago that I would get into some home developing, and i love it!!!! I love being a mad scientist!! Here’s me doing It X-PRO!!

It took a while getting all the bits and pieces together for my mad scientist experiment. The bottles, Patterson Super 4, C41 chemicals etc , but its all been worth it!!

I love the fact that you have created the photograph 100 percent and I feel proud that i have been able to do it ( sometimes not so successfully!! haha) I love the mystery of what will come out even more than waiting for them to be developed at the shop!!!

So, a lot of people don’t want to dabble in cross processing, but i did, just because i had the chemicals to try it. Some worked really well and others didn’t but its all a learning curve.

Here are the pictures where the roll went completely mental, but some nice eerie results came from this!!

And here are some of the ones that came out really well and am really proud of!

I don’t have a dark room or any technical bits and bobs, but it works for me, and i dont really do it do the full extent of the instructions!!

    Great results. I really like the one with the pathway under the branches - the angle and the green combine wonderfully in creating the atmosphere. Also, I liked the one with your reflection in the metal ball.

    Great results. Makes me less hesitant to jump into self-processing.
