I also developed a test roll I had used in my new camera (a Fuji GA645Zi). So happy with the turnout!
…definitely going to continue developing black and white at home whenever I can. I will eventually look into color but not until I move out of an apartment setting.
Also, I started a second tumblr. You should check it out!
