Develop black and white films





Mix all the chemicals the day before. It takes some time for mixing and cooling.

I also use pre-wash to warm up the developing tank and films.

For chemicals the last 2 are optional but I recommend them. Depend on where you live, it might be easier/cheaper to get Kodak or Ilford, as the brand of the chemicals doesn’t really matter. some B&W films are developed with C41 (colour film) process, be aware.

I use binder clips for hanging films.

Make sure the development time is the same before loading different films into the same tank.

It’s much easier to fuck up films when loading them onto reels than during developing, just chill.
