i have worked it out, and don't shoot color film for the most part, when i do it is numbery.
if i want "authentic" color, i will do tri color, not color film and use the doohicky on my desk
to compile the image .. or i'll hand color a b/w print ...
in 10-15 years time i will fall back on something i was doing in the 1980s (and never stopped) ..
when i was in college i taught myself to coat plates ... no expensive workshops,
no internet, just a 1904 annual with a recipe ...
besides, i find it much easier to coat glass or paper, than shooting expired film ...
do you currently shoot expired film, film that was cold stored for 10-20years ?
or are you just expecting that your film will be good without a "dry run" ..
I like the look of hand coloring more than color film anyway. I'll join you in that.
No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.
