I have been trying to step back from digital and into film again. Accidentally developed some c-41 in chemistry I had used to develop some k-14 film and I had some very odd color shifts.

On The Salton Sea and Portrait experiments (Purely technical) 

Second time out at salton sea so I decided to give the new strobe kits at school a day out on the beach, still trying to work out the kinks since it seems that even at full power they have a hard time doing what I want them to do.

On Black and white prints and Toning experiments (the persistence of color) 
So lat night I got a few boxes of Print toner and one thing led to another and I eventually ended up with color prints and white and black prints in bleach and then a toner bath. This is the first batch of the experiment.
