One from my first ever batch of home-developed film.
Looks great, well done! HP5+ is good stuff. What developer?

Speaking of HP5+, the latest episode of Film Photography Podcast is entirely devoted to a very well done piece of radio-style reporting by Viviane Li, all about Ilford film and paper production. Well worth a listen.

I remember how nervous I was the first time I developed. Looks like yours turned out well.

Here are a few of mine, taken on Fomapan 100 in a Yashica Minister III rangefinder.

I used D76, mixed with battery top up water! (de-ionised water - no idea where you get a quantity of distilled water in the UK!)

Yes, I'm a big fan of the FPP. There was an interesting point in that episode where the guy said he'd been involved with looking at how the factory would look (?) 5 years from now. Which means they definitely have their eye on the future - Ilford film should hopefully be here to stay!

Love HP5+, have just ordered some FP4+ to try next.

Yesterday I managed to mess up a whole roll of film when developing it. I guess you live and learn (learn not to absentmindedly unscrew the top off the paterson tank before it's developed! - don't develop when you have a migraine coming, that's my advice!).

I was just kidding about the horizon; obviously it is the slope of the hill not the horizon. It is a good picture.

Here are a few more with the Retinette 1B. I'm thinking about going back to the Epson V500 for my B&W scanning as the DSLR method, while it produces much sharper results, leaves the tones very flat in most cases and I haven't found a satisfactory way of fixing it in post.

Thompson mill first started milling grain in 1858, the year before Oregon became a state, and managed to run until the mid 1970's. It's condition is very much like when they stopped running.

I went to Krakow, Poland for short 4-day trip with Wife and took a ' late model ' LX for B&W HP5+ film -- well, it let me down with the infamous 'Sticky Mirror Syndrome' and there was a delay from pressing shutter to the mirror going up then the shutter going -- in the Salt Mine I lost a good few frames as they were all blank and there was some 'over-exposure' but I printed the negs onto Ilford Ilfospeed Glossy and scanned the results with 'Mustek 1200UB' scanner.
All available light with 50mm f1.4 SMC Pentax-M lens at f1.4 except for the man with horse, ( flash from Sunpak auto 36FD) and Chandelier was at f4 not f1.4

The film is wound from the left-hand spool over to the right-hand spool. After the twelfth exposure turn the film wind knob until it locks. The film counter now shows a red dot. The camera back can then be opened. Pull out the spring-loaded prong at the bottom of the camera and remove the spool. Seal the film spool immediately with the label "Exposed". Prior to inserting a fresh film remove the empty spool on the left-hand side and insert it into the take-up spool chamber on the right-hand side. That's it.

Pentax KX+Voigt 58/1.4 SLII+ACROS100


I'm beginning to realize the difficulty of precise focusing in a KX, especially when using red filters...
