photo from week 294 - Praktica MTL 3
I recently found an old roll of Kodachrome 64 slide film in a charity shop. Kodachrome processing was discontinued at the end of 2010, and is a process which cannot be replicated. There is however the option to process the film in black and white chemicals, and this is what I chose to do with mine. The results are quite grainy and contrasty, but at least I was able to get some kind of image out of this much missed film.
You can see from this picture that the camera's focal plane shutter is not running smoothly, resulting in the left hand portion of the negative being over-exposed.
