Dev Party #9 – Dev Party Out of Bounds

https://allthroughalens.podbean.com/mf/play/ja5bvu/ATAL-DevParty-009-final.mp3 We’re doing something a bit different this session of Dev Party – we’re stand developing color! What’s that, you say? Is that even a thing? Well it is. Sort of. First, stand developing usually (always?) means diluted developer and longer times with zero-ish agitation. For instance, a lot of folks stand develop with Rodinal,Continue reading “Dev Party #9 – Dev Party Out of Bounds”

Dev Party #8 – We’re Gonna Have an FP Party Tonight! Alright!

https://allthroughalens.podbean.com/mf/play/gtdsau/ATAL-DevParty-008-final.mp3 Let’s talk about Ilford’s FP4+! But let’s not just talk about it, let’s shoot and develop it! This is a pretty laid back party, but sometimes parties have to be a bit laid back. Vania: IG, Flickr, Zines Eric: IG, Flickr, Zines All Through a Lens: IG, Website

Dev Party #7 – Dev Party For Your Right to Fight

Well that escalated quickly. We went from “hey there’s this weird flu thing” to “nobody leave their damn houses ever” in like a week (basically). So we’ve decided to back up a bit and give folks who have never developed film before a somewhat wordy overview on how to do it, and what specifically toContinue reading “Dev Party #7 – Dev Party For Your Right to Fight”

Dev Party #6 – Dev Party and Bullshit

It’s an real quick (sort of) Ask Us Anything episode of Dev Party! We field a handful of questions from listeners while developing some film. Vania’s taking on Fomapan something or other, while Eric developed some Ultrafine Extreme 400 at box speed. Both HC-110! The questions range from stuff about C-41 stand development to scannersContinue reading “Dev Party #6 – Dev Party and Bullshit”

Dev Party #5 – Life of the Dev Party

For this episode of Dev Party, we’re taking on ECN-2! This is the color process usually used for motion picture film. But can it also be used for regular color film? Yes, absolutely. Eric has done this for years, and Vania is dipping her toes. We talk about the process itself, and especially about howContinue reading “Dev Party #5 – Life of the Dev Party”

Dev Party #4 – Rock & Roll All Night and Dev Party Every Day

It’s our fourth go around for Dev Party and we’ve found some great success! Vania is developing an old roll of Kodak Gold that he mother shot back in the late 90s. Will it work? What will be found? And Eric is developing a roll of HP5 he shot through a 6×7 back strapped ontoContinue reading “Dev Party #4 – Rock & Roll All Night and Dev Party Every Day”

Dev Party #3 – Dev Party with the Devil

For our third installment of the Dev Party, we’re reviewing the new 120 back made by Normal  M. Dean for the Polaroid Automatic Land Cameras (the ND-120. Eric’s shot a half dozen rolls through it. Vania, on the other hand, is developing some shots from Yosemite. We’re both using HC-110! Could anything get more excitingContinue reading “Dev Party #3 – Dev Party with the Devil”

Dev Party: Episode Two – It’s My Dev Party and I’ll Cry If I Want To

https://allthroughalens.podbean.com/mf/play/q5n4yw/ATAL-DevParty-002-final.mp3 We’re back for our second Dev Party and it’s a bit of bittersweet drama. We’ll get to that in a sec, but first, let’s talk about what we were developing. Eric took on Tasma Mikrat 200 in Rodinal – yes it’s another test. And Vania is developing the same in HC-110. How does itContinue reading “Dev Party: Episode Two – It’s My Dev Party and I’ll Cry If I Want To”

Dev Party: Episode 1

While we take some holiday time off, we thought it would be fun (?) to try out a new idea. We’ve been kicking around the idea of mini-episodes for some time now, and here’s our first attempt. Basically we (Vania and Eric) each develop a couple of rolls of film. She does color, he doesContinue reading “Dev Party: Episode 1”
