    Wow! And to think of all the wasted money I spent on HC-110 and D-76 and Rodinol when I coulda' been souping my film with INSTANT COFFEE and soda crystals! (face>palm!)

    Tylenol (Acetaminophen/Paracetamol) should work, too.

    Theoretically any liquid whose pH is NOT equal to 7 should work.


    • Tea
    • Coca Cola or Pepsi
    • Thunderbird
    • Jack Daniels
    • Alka Seltzer
    • Battery acid (better dilute it)
    • Cuyahoga River water
    • Raw sewage

    How cool!
    Looks like it's time to experiment...

    Do you guys know of any substances that would alter the photos in some way?
    I'd like to try something that would give me some different effects as opposed to something similar but not as good as developer.

    Yes, it works, kind of, but why bother? If you're willing to compound a developer from bulk chemicals, why not use good ones? This coffee stuff stinks something awful!

    Sometimes things like this are fun to mess around with. I'd never use coffee to print any "serious" pictures, but I certainly would like to shoot a few rolls and see how they look... And maybe something outside normal photo process will make a terrific picture...
