Of Their Children

Shooting in the dim with an emulsion rated to around 64iso, I had to steady my body against a doorway in order not to introduce too much motion blur (you’re always going to get a bit with this). I believe I shot it at 1/15 or 1/8 of a second. I’m surprised it turned out at all.

The incredibly long developing time (two hours) was because I mis-measured the amount of developer. I used the amount needed for 500ml, but was actually developing in a 1000ml tank. This took my developer to water ratio from 1:100 to 1:200. Because of that I doubled the time. It all seemed to work out.
