    Ok so not perfect, but hey these are my first attempt at developing some E6 film myself at home. These were both shot on the same roll of Fuji Velvia 50 on my Mamiya RB67. No photoshoping was done other than correcting the levels a little on the second image which was underexposed a bit on the strip. I think that the weird cloud thing above the building is possibly where the end of the strip may have touched the surface of the film during development, either way it's placement is kinda fun.

    Was using a Unicolor Rapid E-6 (3-bath) kit, Unicolor drum + roller.
    Used a pot of water simmered on the stove to get the 120ml of each content upto temperature ( I suppose I could do a bath... but i'm impatient ).

    But ya, I don't think I did too bad for my first try (w/ actually non-expired chemicals).

    Hey Karl,

    Looks pretty good, especially compared to the last set you were having so much trouble with.
