A Conversation for The Black and White Photography Process

Dark bag

Post 1


I always used to use a "Dark bag" to load the film into the developing tank. It takes a bit of practice, but it saved me running up and down the stairs when doing a long run. The bag also comes in handy if you have a film jam in the camera, when out and about.

As for developers, I was always fond of the "one-shot" variety, and preferred the liquid type to the powder. Much easier to mix, and less chance of scratching the neg's, like powder can if not mixed Properly.

Great post, but when are we going to move on to colour, or better still transparencies?

Funnily enough, there is an impending Uni project on Photography, and anyone with an interest/knowledge of photography is invited to contribute. Details can be found here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/h2g2/guide/A544367
