I’ve done very little photography during the COVID lockdown – obviously the opportunities to shoot outside have been limited and I haven’t been motivated to take many images indoors.
I was a little apprehensive before starting, but I found that the ECN-2 process wasn’t really any more difficult than processing C41. To remove the remjet, I soaked the films in a pre-bath (in the developing tank) for 45 seconds, then washed the film until the (initially black) water was coming out clear.
I scanned the negatives using an Epson V700 with Vuescan software and used the Vuescan options to create a raw file, with no colour corrections. This was then inverted using the ColorPerfect add-in to Photoshop, which has a supplied profile for Vision 50D.
I had originally planned to shoot this film on a family holiday in Kent which was due next week – but that’s been delayed for a year due to the virus so it will take a while to get through the remaining 16 rolls.
