This month's pictures were taken with a digital camera, with the emphasis of only being able to crop, dodge and burn as he did in the darkroom. The images were then produced in the darkroom on silver gelatin paper using a digitally produced negative in the hope of being able to portray the atmosphere of the wonderful pictures taken in yesteryears, when trees leaned over, roads were not straight, buildings were out of proportion and people and cars were cut in two.
Cross processing (sometimes abbreviated to X-pro) is the procedure of deliberately processing film in a chemicals intended for a different type of film. The two main methods of cross processing involve developing a slide film in C41, or colour negative film in E6. The result is an unpredictable range of colours, and is often used by Lomographers.
These images were taken on my granddad’s old Kodak Retinette IB, a 35mm viewfinder camera which was made between 1963 - 1966. The camera is in near-mint condition, so I ran another film through it - this time Kodak Elite Chrome 100. Most of these images were taken during my half-term trip to North Devon with my uncle before being cross-processed at a nearby photo lab. The negatives were then scanned with a Plustek 7400 at 3600dpi.

The second of five (3 black & white) that I had exposed during my half-term trip to Devon with my aunt and uncle. The following set of images was taken with a Horizon Perfekt, a panoramic camera with a swinging lens. Scanning was difficult, but I managed to scan two separate frames before stitching them.
