We all know the golden hours to take pictures, sunrise and sunset. But if you are forced to shoot B&W during the day which i am sometimes forced to do you get alot of contrat, and usually flatter lighting. Not much you can do about the latter but i was thinking about the former. If i run Tmax 100 at ASA 50, expose in sunlight normally and develop normally with 5 second agitation every 30 seconds then i get really contrasty gross negs. No fun to print, and look like ****. So i was thinking if shot the same way in sunlight, then underdeveloped by say -10% or -20% that would bring down the contrast, perhaps only agitating once a minute or less to leave some detail in the the highlights. perhaps only doing one agitation. From what i have read about highlights and bromide buildup and stuff this should make the prints alot more printable.... I'm i right in this assessment or way off base. And what would happen if i dilluted the Tmax dev to say 1:3 so i can dev longer, agitating every 2 minutes or so. I am curious about ways to lengthen developing times, and their effects on the emulsion. I am also always looking for ways to fix bad lighting, as much as i can anyways.
