- film, a tank, a developer, a fixer, stop solution, distilled water, a thermometer, a timer.
first thing is to get everything you need.Tank for developing possible to look in the attic probably overlooked, because before all could prove film home themselves.Many photographers use Soviet tanks, but can be purchased at a photo store or order online import tank, it is more expensive, but much more convenient.
also need photochemistry: developer, fixer, stop solution and distilled water.The developer and fixer for the black-and-white films are s
old in powder form or already divorced concentrates.To dilute or dissolve photochemistry, should be guided by the instructions on the can or package.Best all diluted with distilled water, which contains impurities and salts.But we can take ordinary tap water, after boiling it.As a solution for the stop bath can take very little diluted vinegar or buy branded stop solution.
Now the fun part: the process of developing.It should be shut down in the bathroom or another dark room with access to water, to warn all shnih home, do not try to turn on the lights.Prior to processing should lead all image solutions to the desired temperature.In complete darkness unwind film cassette and insert it into the tank.To avoid confusion with this, it is best to work out the light from the unnecessary film.Refuel film, pour the developer.
While developing every minute tank need to scroll clockwise.After enduring the right time, the developer should be drained and pour a stop solution to the process of developing a halt.Development time - the most important of the parameters that need to withstand.The remaining steps forgive error, but this is not.
then poured stop solution and pour fixer.Its better to overexpose than underexpose, otherwise the film will darken over time or go spots.
Once fused fixer, film is rinsed with distilled water and hang to dry.Drain fixer and washing can be done with the lights on.
Tip 2: How to show film
Wink film two ways.The first, and most familiar, to send in a photo lab.The second - to show film home alone.It is not so difficult as it might seem.
- tank developer, thermometer, timer, photochemistry: the developer, stop solution, fixer
films can be divided into twotype: color and black-and-white.Colored, in turn, are negative and positive.Their show - is not easy, not for the home environment.But the black-and-white film to show everyone can.
Prepare photochemistry to film development.Dilute it with the manual and heat or cool to the desired temperature.Typically, the film is shown at 20 degrees Celsius.It is for this temperature specified time on the box and on the packaging of the film from the developer and fixer.
in the dark thread the film into the developing tank.If you do it the first time, try to pre-fill the unnecessary film at the light.Learn basic with a tank, and then get to work in the dark.
Fill the developer tank.The first minute is necessary to mix the solution in it, turning the tank in the direction of the arrow on it.Then stir the developer need every minute for 10 seconds.Development time is indicated on the inner side of the capsule from the film.
After development time, drain developer and fill stop solution.It is necessary to stop the display of film and rid of the waste developer.As a rule, the fixer is used repeatedly, so stop solution to protect it from premature exhaustion.Stop Solution hold about one minute.If stop solution No need to repeatedly pour water into the tank and drain it by rinsing the film in this way.
After stopping solution it is time to fill the fixer.Time fixing points to a bank or a package with fixer.If the fixer is not new, the time necessary to slightly increase.
When the development of film is finished, it should be washed with distilled water to remove fixative.Then hang it out to dry.It is necessary to choose a place where there is no dust in the air.For example, perfect bathroom.
Make sure that the development time was couched as accurately as possible, otherwise the film may be darker or lighter than should have been.
for each film type is best to use chemicals recommended by the manufacturer.As a rule, each manufacturer releases the film for her their solutions.But universal developers will also work.
- processing films
red light is needed for enlargements and print photos, the film Film development should take place in complete darkness!
To learn the necessary duration of the developer, expand the box from the film.On the inner side always shows the time needed for different developers.Time fixing indicated on the packaging of the fixer.Standard for all processes is a temperature of 20 ° C.Stop Solution hold one minute.
