The site of former steelworks, Belval is currently being transferred into a museum and scientific and cultural centre and is currently very much under construction. It is also the site of my new employer, see here for location. The site is often visited by amateur photographers like me, the person I bumped into yesterday recommended also a visit to Völklingen Ironworks near nearby Saarbrücken for those who are interested in photo walks of industrial brownfields.
I haven’t had the time to explore it too much, having been busy to start my job, but I’m sure to add more photos in the coming months.
Just a quick post to let you know that after reading this online book, I’m now very keen on experimenting with Caffenol. Another valuable resource I was referred to is this blog. Please add a comment if there are any other resources you could recommend for me to get started. Can’t wait to get hold of some instant coffee and vitamin-C!
I tried Fuji Neopan Acros 100 at 200 stand developed in Agfa R09 One Shot 1:200 for two hours with 1gr borax and two inversions after one hour, see here. The results were not great, the highlights were overdeveloped, yet the shadows too dark. But somehow it gave me results that seem to be favoured by people using black and white conversions from DSLR images, fancy that.
