In my new video I compared Caffenol and HC-110 as film developers. Caffenol is a film developer made from household products, usually by mixing coffee, washing soda, vitamin C powder and water together. As mentioned in the video, I didn’t use vitamin C in this particular experiment.
The results are quite interesting. With Caffenol, the negative has a yellow brownish tint and is less dense, meaning the negative is less developed. As a result, the end image looks darker than HC-110 counterpart.
The grains with Caffenol are also much more pronounced. It is more obvious in the 35mm Tri-X negatives.
You can check out my video for full observations. To conclude it is quite a fun experiment to have (especially you have a lot more time during quarantine).
How are you all holding up? Hope you are doing well and keeping yourself sane.
Sharing a roll of 120 Provia 100F I shot back in February in my new video. There is this plum tree in my area, apparently quite popular among photographers, it would blossom every year around late winter.
On a day in February, I went out and shot this plum tree, here are some of the images.
How are you doing? I hope you are doing well and staying safe.
Loosely speaking, I have been working from home since February. One of the positive things about this is I have a lot more time on hand to do and create stuff. Along side photography, I have started printing and baking a lot more. (Baking kills time very well)
Finding things to shoot at home can be challenging. This is one of those light bulb moment, when I warmed the eggs to room temperature…
