Nice! I came back from a trip with about 125 rolls. In my case, a mix of 35 and 120. And I recently did 65 rolls of MF for a client. I have three large Paterson tanks: I put three rolls in each one and could therefore do 9 in a batch. Still, a lot of work. But that's why we do this, right? It's part of the process.
Take your time. That way you'll have the enjoyment of re-discovering scenes that your memory hasn't been able to retain. I get great joy when I look at some negs and discover that I have the pleasure of a forthcoming print to look forward to that I had forgotten about.
There are bound to be some prints crying out for hand colouring as well. Enjoy!
I just got home from a trip to the French West Indies. Shot 117 rolls, in 3 weeks (some for a client, but most for me). I've never had this much film to develop, but excited to get started.
Thought I'd share, here, as most of my friends don't get it, but everyone here does.
Looks like an ideal situation for using a replenishment regime.
117 rolls - that is 1.5 packages of X-Tol, or 1.5 bottles of T-Max RS
“Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”
