Those well-versed in black and white techniques often avoid side-stepping into the colour world and all of its differing technicalities. In truth, processing colour film, specifically C41, is arguably easier than a traditional black and white process. With minilabs closing down and a prevalence of C41 chemistry kits readily available, home processing of C41 is quickly becoming an option which is both time-saving and cost-saving.
I recently acquired a 35mm roll of PolyPan F, a black and white panchromatic film designed for striking positives for motion film. For some time photographers have been using this cheap stock for stills photography with captivating results.
