    A trifecta of new stuff, getting out of my comfort zone doing color!

    Well, this is a bunch of new stuff for me this weekend! I guess it's more than I trifecta, like trifecta ^2
    • I used my BTZS tubes, it's been a while!
      I processed C41 in it, never did color before.
      I used a 135mm lens with a 220mm bellows draw.
      I used my Sekonic 398 meter for the EV bellows factor. I think I did it right.
      I think, pretty sure, the film is expired.
      First time I used my betterscanning AN holder.
      I've never actually been really good with editing color negs in lightroom, the colors are wonky, I'm pretty sure my patio is a reddish color, not sure why its kinda grey'ish blue. But the flower and leaves are sort of right colors!


    I'm pretty sure the weird vertical lines are from the btzs tubes. I overfilled them so not sure why it looks like a good portion didn't get developed. It may have sat too long before the next set of tubes.
    Oh well, it was a good effort. I'll try a few more sheets with normal colors somewhere and see what happens. I probably will do tray processing as I'm so used to it on the bathroom floor, with music, in the dark and just relaxing....

    Well, it turns out I didn't f* up too much. I did some 35mm Kodak Gold Ultra after this batch of 4x5's and it came out just fine. So my very old Portra has shifted colors... bummer.

    Looks nice Eric, keep posting! I'm interested to hear about your experience with BTZS tubes with C-41.

    It was okay, I don't think I'm using it right. I just watched a Youtube guy and he put the tube with film upside-down onto the cap. Apparently, I've been doing it wrong the whole time!
