Hello Post

Welcome to Between 2 Lenses: a collaboration between two people! Two perspectives, really! Each of us (Anna and Nick) bring a unique viewpoint to this endeavor.

An Experiment in Eco-Friendly Developing

Disclaimer: This is not so much a lesson, as a journal entry in our film developing process. It was the first time we developed using household chemicals, so there's much for us to learn.
