Okay I figured this would be the place to post this. Right now I'm sitting at home bored next semester I take a course in B&W photography... But you see I'm not exactly sane and I have like 5 rolls of color film that are probably already completely destroyed anyway. So my idea (which after considerable research HAS been done before) is to develop the color negatives in a COFFEE based developer. I am completely aware that the most likely result is TOTAL FAILURE. So to the point any tips as to how to go about this? Questions I have so far: From what I hear this is going to take a LONG time (color in black&white chemicals takes longer black&white in coffee takes longer) any ideas as to how to make this process faster (without using standard developers)? This is my understanding of developing so far (correct me if I'm wrong) Developer takes silver halide crystals that have been struck by a photon and turns them into a grain of silver Stop bath just dilutes the developer enough to stop it from developing. Fixer (not exactly sure maybe makes image more permanent?) I know this probably isn't the best way to experience developing film for the first time but it sounds like a fun project and it isn't like I'm expecting results. So any comments would be appreciated criticisms most likely ignored unless they make very good sense.
