First time developing colour film | Minolta Hi-Matic AF2 | 38mm f2.8 | Ektar 100

There were only a couple of shots that I found particularly interesting on this roll, but I did shoot it quickly with the thought that I wanted to try developing with C-41 chems asap. That said, there are some nice captures of the Mile End the way it is right now.

Hitting the temperature  for the developer was a lot easier than I expected. In fact I hit 39 degrees C on the first try after putting the chem bottles in a warm water bath. I did end up with some streaks on a few and, still, a lot more dust on the negatives than I’d like. Thank goodness for that healing tool in Lightroom. These are mostly raw with no fixes, except for a couple.

I had been avoiding developing colour as the fella behind the counter at Photo St Denis told me I would be wasting my time and nothing would turn out. Glad I didn’t listen. Now to develop the many rolls I have in backlog and hope they turn out as well.

    Love the variety. And Lol. The TUMS!
    I especially love that I’ve been to Montreal and to your home. Are these all Montreal pics?
