I’m finally going to do it. Develop my own black and white film. I have all the stuff that I need and I am about to attempt it for the first time.
I watched As part of my research and preparation, I had watched Jim Talkington’s excellent video on developing black and white film. He makes it look so easy. It probably is but that still doesn’t stop my heart from pounding. If you’re reading this Jim, many thanks for the video…..
I borrowed the developing tank, Muna and bought the chemicals from Keat in Jalan Pudu. Ilford Ilfotec LC29 and Ilford Rapid Fixer. I also bought an assortment of beakers, containers and stuff from the chemist.
I also read the very excellent Ilford instruction guide for developing your first black and white film. The other piece of literature I’ve read is ‘The Essential Darkroom’ by Tom Grill and Mark Scanlon.
I’m all ready to begin the first part which is to get the film into the canister…. Fingers crossed…..
