This was shot during the end of 2013, when a few of us went for a camping weekend at relatively close by Burn on Crouch, Essex.


The camera used was shot with a Rainbow V plastic 35mm camera, which sell from cheap to ridiculous prices. It has an ultra wide 22mm lens which you can see the perspective it gives by the pier. It is very sharp through out the frame, especially when compared to my Holga’s which only really have a sharpish central area.


Taken during late autumn, with sun and cloud and shooting into the light, surprisingly produced no flare. The film used was one of the Rollei branded ISO 400's.


The film was stand developed in 6ml of Rodinal made up to 606ml of liquid = 1 + 100 and then agitated for the first minute and then just left alone for an hour. Even though I forgot about the film for an extra 20 minutes, the film was still fine.


Printed at grade 2, full frame complete with film rebate, as I thought that it suited it. It was printed onto Ilford RC Satin paper and developed in a Nova slot processor. Over printing it slightly, I bleached back all of the print, in a weakish, home made Farmers Reducer solution for about 2 minutes which lightened the pier and the highlights through out just the right amount = for me anyway.

A really powerful image. The grain and high contrast really suit the subject. You've had better success with bleaching than I have -I almost always overdo it and lose detail in the highlights.

Thanks for the comments Rob.


I attempted to make a second print yesterday, doing exactly as I did previously, but the whole of the print just came out flat with all the blacks turning to dark grey.


The only thing I can put it down to is the Farmers Reducer which was freshly made for the first print. I thought that it kept well, but seems not! It was only about a week old. Sad


Next try will be with fresh FE for sure.
