These are some shots from the first roll of film I developed myself.

Photos taken with a Nikon FM10 camera, Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 D lens, and Ilford FP4+ film (ISO 125), developed in Ilfosol 3. I used a reversal ring for the macro shots (my dog’s eye, the dreamy flower, and the house details).

I scanned the photos with an Epson V600 and used Photoshop to remove dust and scratches and adjust levels. (And I flipped the self-portrait horizontally so the “Nikon” wouldn’t be backwards.) No other cropping or editing was done.

I developed my first roll of film at home. So far I’ve been relying on a local shop or Costco to develop and scan for me, but I bought some B&W darkroom stuff and an Epson V600 so I can do this myself.

I still have to dry and scan the negatives. We’ll see how it turns out.

Shiku and my Dad, the Best of Friends

He took Shiku on his first walk with a leash, and they relaxed by reading magazines together.

He’s basically taken over my photo library these days.
