I love shooting colour 35mm negative film. Like most general users of the 1990s, it was my first experience with photography.
Until recently, the basic C-41 chemical process was a cheap, popular pathway through analogue photography thanks to mini developing labs in almost every local pharmacy.
But by the turn of the 2010s, that was set to change - and I've had to shift my choice of film too.
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'm just getting used to my new exposure...
