Here is a little story about the dark room! In college on wednesday, The tutor (this is our second time in the dark room.) asked us (myself and 3 people from my class.) to make up the solutions. we followed our notes, measurement for measurment, temperature and all! our prints all come out grey after about 1 hour the tutor told the other 3 to stay in class and asked me to test some other paper to see if the paper we were using had been exposed. about 30 minutes later, he seen about 4 of my prints and asked me to throw away the developer solution, and re make them. exact same problem! another 20 minutes later he asked me to change the fixer solution, when I asked "is it the small bottle (film fixer.) or the large tub (paper fixer.) thats when he clicked. "what developer did you use? the small bottle or the tub?" "uh... i used the small bottle." "That is why it didn't work! that is for film!" (not as angry as I made it sound, he is pretty understanding.) so i had to go in and re mix ALL the solutions using the correct chemicals. Finally my prints came out as they should have ------------- Additional. But if paper develop turns stuff darker than film developer, would it be possible to use paper developer to develop film to make it really contrasty? I doubt it but just wondering. I love using the dark room its AWESOME!
