Portraits on X-ray film
I brought the Crown Graphic one morning to practice and took some portraits pictures afterwards
The film holders were loaded with more of the dental X-ray film.
I developed three batches of four sheets each in the same 300ml of 1+50 HC-110, the pictures shared here are from the second and third batch. I can’t see any clear signs of depletion of the chemicals, nothing that stands out over the other flaws of my process anyway.
Even if they’re not as visible in these jpgs the images came out rather scratched this time as well. At first I blamed the cutting machine, but the scratches run length wise, i.e. orthogonal to the film’s path through the machine. My next candidate is the film holders, I’ll clean them properly before loading the next batch and see if that helps.
In the last batch I had some problems fitting the sheets into the pockets in the binder. But with this batch I reduced the 4″ side of the film from 100mm to 99.5mm, and now they fit.
