About This Class

In this class you will learn how to process one roll of 35mm black and white film.

We will be using:

  • Kodak D76 Developer
  • Water Stop Bath
  • Ilford Rapid Fixer
  • Kodak Photoflo

  • Patterson Developing tank and reel
  • Aluminum Developing tank and reel
  • Dark bag

All of the prcesses learned today can be used at home to develop your own film.  I have provided scans from a photography textbook to help illustrate the film developing processes and for your own use later on.

This class will have a follow up class on how to create a darkroom print using a wet gelatin silver process.  However, the negatives made in class today can be scanned using a digital scanner.
