As always, if you have questions, objections, worries or praise, and especially if you found your picture and want it removed, feel free to contact me. I will get back to you as soon as possible. You can also read my full disclaimer, if you are interested.

 

The problem with taking breaks in the usual workflow of shooting, developing and editing is that things accumulate. I normally don’t mind the development part of my work with film too much. With a bit of experimentation in between it’s even sometimes enjoyable. However, I don’t really like to develop every day and especially not C41 film that needs much more attention. Nevertheless with 32 rolls still to be developed I better continue my daily efforts even if it’s not all that enjoyable so that one day I can return to a more relaxed style of working.

There are still 6 rolls left to be developed with my second litre of Fuji Hunt chemicals and I have to say that I’m not convinced of them for manual development. I have tried about everything I can think of in terms of agitation and I can’t seem to get even development out of them with my Paterson tank and AP spools. Maybe it’s the spools that upset the flow of chemicals in the tank, but since I didn’t have any problems with the Tetenal chemicals even when agitating with the stick I think it’s the chemicals that are the main problem here. When it works, the results are superb, better than with Tetenal actually, but sadly I only managed it once, by chance. In fact I even doubt that it would have worked if all the rolls would have had pictures with a lot of sky in them. And so the experimentation continues …
