I plan to self-develop my first two rolls of B&W this weekend - wish me luck!
Good luck. Just keep the dust off the film when its drying and if the water is "hard" where you live, add one or two drops of dishwasher rinse aid to the final rinse

Thanks! The first one was with Ilford HP5 Plus, and the second was Kodak T-Max 400.

Nice series. That building in the last one has a lot of character.

Here are a few shots from my first ever roll of B&W film, taken using an MX. It was HP5+ at ISO 400, home-developed in Ilfosol 3 at 22C. I'm not entirely happy with the shots in general, a surprising number were out of focus. I had to adjust the time (20% lower) due to finding that the tap water here comes out at 22C. Later in the day when I processed a roll of T-Max 100 it was at 23.

These are the shots from Edinburgh, where the city streets and nasty weather make an ideal situation for B&W. I found the ones taken in sunny Spain in general didn't work so well and the contrast was much lower. That doesn't seem to be the case with the T-Max 100 I developed the same day though, which is perhaps more suited to the better weather.

Opinions and feedback welcome.

I don't think my first attempt looked that good so well done. My favourite is the second shot where the wet cobbles look great. I think the first one looks spot on in terms of exposure/contrast. The rest look a little overexposed to me and shot four looks a lot overexposed. Just my opinion though..... its all down to personal choice. Of course your agitation routine can effect the way your negs turn out quite a bit so its good to learn a bit about over/under agitation and how it affects contrast.

Its good fun though isn't it?

First "street" test shots of Delta3200 at EI400 (EI200 with yellow filter) at the 39th annual Butte to Butte run in Eugene, OR. I guess my lens hood was not on square in the first shot and did a quick clone to get rid of it.








Delta3200 @ EI400, Y2 Yellow
