Last week at the Outer Circle Rd Industrial Estate in Lincoln, I loaded a roll of Ilford FP4 into the Konica C35v, which I finished yesterday in Sudbrooke (TF045763).

The Konica C35v is a zone focus 35mm viewfinder camera, though it looks similar to a rangefinder. It is fully automatic and features a 38mm f/2.8 lens. This camera, manufactured in 1974 should use mercury 1.35v cell batteries. With a modern 1.5v battery of equivalent size, the meter is ⅔ stop too high. This was easily corrected using the meter adjustment.

Caffenol is a homemade developer, usually made from instant coffee, washing soda and vitamin C. There are many different variations, some to individual films. For this film, I used 4 tsp of coffee, 2.5 tsp of washing soda and 3500mg of ascorbic acid tablets before topping it up to 300ml with water. I then added 3 tsp of table salt as a reducing agent (to reduce background fog). After brewing for a couple of minutes, I poured it in and developed for 6:48 minutes at 27.They were later scanned using a Plustek OpticFilm 7400 at 3600 dpi. Photoshop work was minimal, consisting of spot removal and curves.

Love this, great work! The slight depth of field works really well here and makes it a joy to study, especially as you've put a lot of work into it!

Awesome stuff!

A well seen image - I love neglected corners like this, you're never quite sure what you will find! There is so much to see in this photograph, well taken and processed.
