Another month passed, and another photo of the month to publish. I'm starting to get the hang of sharing a photo a month. This month sure was easier than last time.
This time, I got a frame I tried to take a few times until the right conditions came together. The right weather, the right sky, and not too much foot traffic cause distractions.
I wanted the person in the photo to wear something light to contrast against the darker tones of the bridge - I cheated and asked for help, so the person in the shot was placed.

I did switch form ATOMAL to XT-3 to try how replenishment affects development and if I can save some waste by using that process. So far mixed results the times XT-3 takes are very different and some of the films came out hooriby overexposed o.O; so I think I slowly start to find the right times.

Let’s start with my favorite photo of May, which ironically is not going to be the Photo Of The Month. The following photo came to be because I pulled ADOX CMS 20 II by a stop during development.

It's shot in black and white, with an amazing film, ADOX CMS 20 II with the Nikon F4 with a 50mm f/1.8 prime lens. I love how much detail the film can capture. Any grain is from the digital camera rather than the film.

I found that when I started, I didn't quite find a source that gave me the starting point I needed. That's not to say that there aren't great resources out there, but it felt like I had to piece things together from many sources, blogs, videos, word of mouth, reports from my crow spies, and match them to what I did and needed.

I have been taking quite a few photos over the last year and a bit, some good, many bad. It is pretty easy for me to take, develop, scan, and archive my photos, it's a process, and I'm pretty good at following procedures. Sharing my work, not so much. None of the shots are perfect or “good enough” for the (perhaps much too high) standard I hold myself to, so I tend to take them, file them away and move on.
