The Good: I managed to successfully develop two rolls of film in my own bathtub.
The Bad: I did this instead of practicing the cello, which sucks because I have a lesson tomorrow morning.
The Ugly: The (nudie) roll of film I took with my new cable release is fucked. For years, I have had a recurring problem with a sticking shutter blade in my camera. It's intermittent, so difficult to fix, and I don't really have the money to get the camera serviced properly. It happened with the first roll I took for this course, and apparently it happens almost without fail when I use a cable release. Every shot has a great big black (white) stripe across it.
Damnit. Well, at least I found this out now, and not next week in class, which would have been a disaster. I'll just have to shoot and develop another roll tomorrow and see what happens. After my cello lesson. Gah.
