Color Processing: First Attempt

This afternoon, one of my professors worked with me to process some Portra 160 35mm film using a Jobo CPP2 processor that belongs to my school. Ever since getting into photography, processing color film has been something I've wanted to try.

It's a pretty complicated and delicate process. Unlike B&W film, temperatures, times, and measurements must be exact when dealing with color. A slight error can lead to a multitude of different issues. For example, my film came out with a strong green tint, and was covered with small specs. My professor and I will have to try and figure out how to correct these issues for future processing. Here are a few images from my roll. I used my Pentax LX and a 50mm lens. The location was City Park.
