Slide film

I have an Irrational fear of... developing slide film.
Unfortunately with the slide kit I made two huge mistakes.
The first time I self-developed Kodak Ektachrome 100 I used the Cinestill slide developer kit. I used the dynamic chrome version. I was really excited. I’ve had huge success with their regular C-41 kit. I use it exclusively actually, I highly recommend it. 

Mistake #1 
My thermostat was off by probably 5 degrees. I didn’t realize this til months later. Almost all my exposures looked underdeveloped or underexposed. I’m not sure which, it was a huge bummer. I developed two rolls and they all looked bad.
Mistake #2 
Since I didn’t realize it was the thermostat I didn’t know what I did wrong so I didn’t want to try again. I hit pause on slide film and shot the next best thing, Kodak Ektar 100.
Well recently I got myself a new Cinestill slide kit and I’m hoping to give it another go. Stay tuned.

Corn, but not the corny kind

I was at Seaworld and had my Voigtlander 40mm manual focus lens on my Nikon F80. I keep my lens focused to infinity; Zone Focus, BABY! I happen to glance up and I saw a dolphin in the air. I quickly raised my camera. As I was raising my camera I focused closer, maybe to 10 feet and took the shot. It was quick and I wasn't even really sure what I got. It was all muscle memory. I asked myself; was the dolphin still in the air? 

It's not super sharp but I got the shot! Another example that Zone Focusing works.

Not particularly good; not better than average...
I think this type of photo ages the best because so few are photographed. But this is actually a very special moment. Remember, this road, with this assortment of cars, in this arrangement, at this time of day will probably never happen again.
but this type of photograph age the best.
