These two photos of my daughters for me represent all that I could have hoped for since starting to experiment with Caffenol 6 months or so ago. I have been very impressed in general with Caffenol and have many nice examples since starting out. I hope to share more photos taken here and there in Japan and overseas as well as thoughts about the cameras, film and development as I go along. Welcome, and thanks for looking!
Camera: Rolleicord lll (circa 1950-1953)
Film: Fomapan 100 (ei80)
Development: Caffenol stand (70m20d)
These photos were taken in the late afternoon last winter with a bit of sun reflecting off the buildings across the street. I might have been a hair off the focus on the second one but I still think it is a pleasing photo (needed a bit more depth of field- and perhaps a tripod). The Rolleicord lll is probably my favorite TLR so far out of my limited selection simply because of its ergonomics; the focus and film advance on the same side mean you do not have to keep changing hands. It is a simple machine but it works beautifully. This was my first experience with Fomapan 100 in 120 format and I really like its look. Man is it curly though. Downright difficult to get it into the film scanner sometimes. Don’t know what they put into it- maybe spring steel or carbon fiberglass or something..
