C41

After successfully developing some rolls of B&W film, I wanted to try something new.

It was time to get my hands on developing color film.

Google and YouTube really are your friends if you want to learn something new. I watched videos people who had successfully developed their own color film and decided to try it out myself.

It was autumn and the colors were just shouting to try out some Portra 400.

So I purchased a C41 kit and mixed the chemicals. This picture is from my first roll of self-developed color film:

With the modern C41 kits the developing really isn’t that different from B&W. The only issue is to get the temperature exactly right (100F, 37.8C). This took me a while in the first attempt but the pictures turned out great.

    I do consider all of the ideas you have offered to your post.
    They’re very convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for novices.

    Could you please lengthen them a little from next time?
    Thank you for the post.
