I’ve been shooting and developing my own images for over a year now and there is something I learn every time I go through the process. This was my first attempt with E6 processing and it actually came out.  At first thought, it was supposed to be harder than C41 but it turned out easier for me because the blix stage on E6 was not the same as the bleach process on C41. There was no expansion in my tank, smooth sailing through the whole process just like the image above rowing into the sunset.

I guess I’ve always over analyzed things in general, there is always a plan A and a manual ready for reference just for plan B, in case something goes out of control. E6 processing was not hard at all, things in general always seem harder but when you get down to it, it is not that bad or hard. Life is always a journey, you should not be afraid to take that step, it may seem hard but you’ll never know how hard it is until you take that step.
