Well if you missed http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=119939 I just started developing. I am using a Kodak D-76 developer and an Ilford Rapid Fixer, no stop bath, no drying aid. To say the first time was a disaster is an understatement. I dropped the film while winding the reel, and just as I wound the reel the sensor light outside came on and I could visibly see a small amount of light leaking into where I was working. Anyway I quickly dumped the reel into the tank and put on the lid. I couldn't get the temperatures down to 20degrees. (I live in Australia) I even tried filling the sink water with ice, but in the end I settled for adjusting all the times to 22 degrees. After the first inversion I realised the o-ring in the development tank was still laying on the floor of my cupboard since I knocked it out in my haste to get the film in. Developer went everywhere. I think I over developed slightly my images seem to be very contrasty, but then again I shot on a Holga so it really is hard to tell. I also need to refine my drying. I got two wet spots on my negative that I have found so far and I noticed what I dried with left some lint on the film which came up bright white on the scan. I will go back into the original thread and start taking some of the varied advice from there for my next roll. Well my favourite photo: I am looking forward to doing another roll next week but this time from my Nikon FE so I will be more clued in to if my photos are correctly exposed or not.
