I may be shooting a show in some way low light this weekend. To prepare I picked up a couple rolls of Tmax P3200 at the only decent camera store around for $7 a roll. I figure Ill probably push it to 6400, and last night I did some looking around online and thought lets push some Tmax 400 to 6400 and try some semi-stand developing. So at about 1:30am I loaded up some film, and went out to burn a roll. Got back home around 2:30 and went right to developing. I was totally guessing on my developing technique. I used Arista 76 at 1+3 for 1 hour. 30 seconds of Agitation to start, then 15 seconds at the 30 min mark. While Im pleased it worked at all, there were some issues. 1st and most prolific is what looks to be Bromide Drag? Im using that term without really understanding it but I did see it described as something just like this. It appears on every one of the negs if you look hard enough, some of them are much more pronounced that others. 2nd issue is that nice scratch you see going across the bottom, its on every neg in the same spot, Im guessing its from the way I loaded the reel. As I was loading the reel I remember there being some friction, but it was 2:30 in the morning and I was in a hurry. I had serious issues getting them to scan, I had to select the images manually the scanner couldn't pick up where one started and one ended. And Frankly neither could I, lots of guessing and rescanning. The other issues where exposure related. So now to questions, To avoid the Bromide Dragish type marks, Ive read I need to agitate more. I would assume I should dilute my developer a little more If im going to agitate more, but how much? The only other developer I have is Ilfosol S that is probably just about out of time, Ive had it open for a couple months now, would that have been a better choice? Here are a few more shots I liked off the roll. 1. self Portrait 2. I think my legs are different lengths, I cant keep a horizon straight to save my life 3. Im not sure why but I like this one To see a few more, check my flickr below. Thanks for reading.
