It's an interesting link, but the photos that are posted, look like he used expired film. There are some strange color shifts in those pictures. Is he doing "lomo" photos?
I don't mean to be nit-picky, but when I do break out my color negative film, I like true to life colors normally.
I don't mind his Lomo colours. I do mind the marks and stains all over his images. This week I've processed a lot of C-41 with very good results, clean and with colour that matches a pro lab reference. Got my info from APUG and polyglot.
Thanks for sharing. Indeed lomo style but it's still interesting for a b&w shooter like me who wants to begin in developing some color films.
The problem is, some people will THINK this is the proper way of processing colour film, when they see results that are muddy with horrible colour, they will be convinced that it's impossible to do at home, and they will run out and buy a digital camera, because they don't want to pay $15/roll for lab processing.
I once decided that half the stuff on the Internet was BS, and the other half was someone pushing an agenda..... I have yet to see someone prove that wrong....
So, now that I've learned to process my own B&W film, I wanted to learn how to process color. So, where could I go for instructions on how to do it? Since the link posted by Mainecoonmaniac does not appear to be the right way to do color, where can one learn the proper way? Is the link posted by polyglot it? Is that better? Thanks so much.
Read the Polyglot link, watch some of the tutorials on Youtube and you should be ready to start. You might find some contradictory info on Youtube such as people washing the film after the stabiliser, in which case refer back to the Polyglot instructions. Also follow the instructions that come with whatever kit you buy. It's a pretty simple process - the key thing is temperature control in the developer stage.
The example from the OP is good film with a bad process. It has severe crossover and some other problems to boot, and he does not recognize it which is even worse. This may be due to his technique or due to the process temperature which is low. Also, black plastic garbage bags leak light big time. Look through one! Nuff said on that!
Don't use this guys advice.
Use 100F, use a real changing bag, use a prewet to temper the tank, and use a bleach then fix to insure that all silver is removed.
