Strange, but I don't see any pictures. Perhaps the host server is down?

Ibenac,

VERY beautiful shots. Your choice of film really captured a mood. Thanks for sharing!

--------------------

A little off topic...

To those of you that want to develope your own film, you do not need a darkroom. You just need somewhere dark to change the film from the canister to the tank. Any room without windows will do. Or you can use a changing bag, and do the entire process in your kitchen.

Once the film is in the developing tank, it is really no harder then mixing a martini.

The only reason one would need a darkroom is to do analog wet prints.

Likewise. "Darkroom in a bag" kind of appeal to me...

Thanks guys for the kind comments.
The only part I don't like is that the film is not produced anymore. SO if it becomes my film of choice when the stock are gone then I will have to change (likely to Delta 100). That said I just ordered 20 rolls and might keep doing that once I have some funds to spare.

Cheers,

Luc

Great thanks Chris.
So I will have to look for Rollei Retro 100 when my source of Agfa dries out.

Cheers,

My friend was showing off a B&W Photo that he developed himself so I become a bit jealous just like he wanted me to Unfortunately I definitely have zero space for darkroom. I can only hope that the school's darkroom won't be closed anytime (too) soon
You don't need much darkroom if you are planning on scanning the negs:
  • Changing bag
  • Tank
  • Reel(s)
  • Chemistry
  • Things to measure with
  • Viscous sponge
  • Quality/accurate thermometer
I have used the windowless laundry room in the dead of night in lieu of a changing bag and hung the film on the bathroom shower rod to dry. The main issue in my mind is storage for the chemistry and a work counter that can be easily cleaned after use.

hello Chris,

I checked it out. With the shipping included it is more expensive that from my source in Canada.

Cheers,

Luc
