Film photography and developing

I got my chemicals for developing film yesterday along with a tank. Here are the first attempts.Taken with the Zeiss Ikon camera I bought. One thing I forgot when building my shed/darkroom was you need the chemicals to be at 20-21 degrees C. Meaning the shed will be used as a darkroom for summers only.

  1. Oh shoot! Maybe you can get a space heater or something for the shed?!?!
    They look good. How did you like developing your own? It would seem to me that have so much capability with the digital cameras it would be hard to give that up. How do you feel about that?

    1. The temp of the chemicals has to be 20C. Meaning with you, you'd have to use ice to lower the temp. As to doing it myself, I got a great kick out of seeing the image come to life on the acetate. But I'm never going to give up the digital. The film is an aspect.

    1. Thanks. I'm glad they came out both for the camera and the processing.

  3. I’m envious... I used to enjoy doing my own b&w photos.

  4. I really enjoyed working in the darkroom. I could spend hours in there so absorbed in my work that I completely forget about the outside world.
