Straight E-6

Photographed with nothing but window light and a wall in a hotel room somewhere in the state of Ohio.

I made this photograph using Rollei Crossbird 35mm film. This stuff is basically slide film "optimized" to be cross processed which in all honesty I find kind of hokey. After all, cross processing is supposed to be random and sort of crappy. That is the whole point of doing it.

Still, in a way I actually like using this stuff as just straight slide film. It comes out a bit on the yellow/warm side and is strangely grainy for a slide film, but I like the look of it anyway. It kind of has a nice feel with skin tones.
