Color Film Processing at Home

There are quite a few opinions out there on the ‘net that processing color film yourself is just too darn hard.  I’m happy to report that I managed to do it for the first time – and if I can do it, it’s definitely not that hard.  You do have to be able to keep water at 102 degrees Fahrenheit for a few minutes, but I filled the sink and had no trouble at all – much easier than keeping the water 68 degrees when your tap runs at over 70.

The Jobo C-41 Press Kit and the explanations, both at this website and on the detailed instructions in the Jobo kit, made it easy.  Here are a couple I took with an old Ricoh Super Kr-5.

And then there’s this one. Hey, it’s in color – that’s all that matters!
