This week I am focused on carrots, a root vegetable and in ample supply this time of year.  I picked up a 5-pound bag for four dollars at the farmers market.  The carrots were large, gnarly, and not very tasty, but perhaps good for developing I thought.  The results were not that stellar.

Test 1

Test 2

Test 3

These carrots did not hold promising results, but perhaps they needed to be fresher.

 Worked on making my light box this week and conducted a camera test this week trying out a few settings with the Canon 1014 XLS.  The standard caffenol recipe with the reversal consistently works like a dream!

All the nuts come out for the holidays, perfect for filming!  It was a busy week in the kitchen, boiling down different plants and letting the steep, sometimes with beautiful aromas and sometimes a little intense...like onion.  My goal is to use these "teas" as developers and tints.  I also found a beautiful dragon fruit!
