I’ve seen a rising interest on my tea b&w film developer post lately and realized that I never did post my recipe here. It has been a while since I actually developed a roll of film with it but this recipe worked when I did use it. Your mileage may vary. Ingredients (to make 500ml): … Continue reading “4-Tea-C: My Own Tea B&W Film Developer Recipe”
The last Sunday of April is the Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day, or Pinhole Day for short. This year, it fell on April 27, which was yesterday. I managed to talk my husband into driving me to the town of Goderich, Ontario by the Lake Huron to take some pinhole photos with my trusty Lumix GF1 … Continue reading “Photos from Pinhole Day 2014”
This is a very late weekly post, but better late than never! I count Monday as first day of the week so, in theory, I didn’t miss a post. At least that’s what I like to believe.
This past Saturday we decided against going on a thrifting round, which is what we usually do on a Saturday. When my husband asked what I felt like doing that day, I said, “Going to Goderich and get two dozen butter tarts!” and to which he said, “That’s what I’m thinking, too!” We are so … Continue reading “Lovely Saturday”
A brand new niece came into the world almost a month ago, and as always, Aunt Firda, the long-suffering family photographer, was summoned to capture the craziness for posterity.
“I’ve been everywhere, man!” Well, sort of. After our trip to Newfoundland (which was fantastic, by the way), we decided to take up geocaching because we nerds needed a nerdy reason to go outside and enjoy the great outdoor. Geocaching sounds like a nerdy enough reason, even if it sometimes makes us do really stupid … Continue reading “What We’ve Been Up To Lately”
Pinhole Day is only two days away! Well, technically, it’s three days away, but since the last Sunday of April this year is also Easter Sunday, they will accept pinhole photos taken between April 23 and May 1. You don’t get three days a week to come up with a pinhole photo to submit to … Continue reading “Pinhole Day”
UPDATE: I posted my very own tea developer recipe here! After searching the web for information on tea-based film developer and not finding much, except for this rather inspiring forum thread, I decided to just bite the bullet and make my own tea developer based on what little information I had. I didn’t have black … Continue reading “Developing B&W film with Tea”
I’ve probably used the picture above in another post in the past but thought I’d post it again because it just won me a new camera bag through a photo contest held by Book Depository! There were 2260 entries when the contest ended. Who knew I’d be one of the 10 winners. I only entered … Continue reading “Dental Woes”
I love learning to do new things. It gives me a sense of accomplishment when I look back. This year I’m hoping to: Learn to draw; Learn to make cute shrinky dinks out of my drawings; Learn to make negatives out of Fuji instant film; Maybe learn to knit. I said maybe to knitting because … Continue reading “Live and Learn”
Photo by Jody Miller No, this is not going to be a self-congratulatory post about how a photo of mine got selected to be included in a book by an awesome group of photographers and writers called Utata that I’ve been a member of for years, nor is this about how somehow it ended up … Continue reading “My First Book Cover”
I’ve been wanting to try developing film with Caffenol-C for awhile (the fact that it’s environmentally-friendly really appeals to me), and last week, I finally did. The first roll I developed turned out to be a dud since it came from a totally experimental pinhole camera. I had no more exposed roll to try to … Continue reading “Developing B&W film with Caffenol-C”
