Yeah, I finally got the hang of it and have been getting consistent results, but I don't have as much time for photography now since my job is 50-60 hours a week and outside all day long, so I'm either working or sleeping mostly now.



The ones of the derelict cabin were with Ilford 125 delta, but they have the most grain out of any other films I've developed. When I sent it out, they were super contrasty but didn't have grain. I'm guessing it's just the developer I'm using? Ilford DD-X by the way.

You can end up with too much grain self-developing if you have chem. temps too far off, Ilford 125 shouldn't really have any noticeable grain and normal print / scan resolutions... Hell, I've shot Ilford 3200 film and it wasn't very bad, but a screwed up temp on the developer bath can make Pan 50 grainy... that or hard/badly chlorinated water.

got a question for you guys.

i don't know jack about photography and its esoteric culture. my wife is a fairly serious photo person, and i want to get her something 'cool'--what, for under $250 would be a cool photo related gift? i don't want to get lenses or camera accessories.

To be honest, If I was given a Polaroid cam as a gift I'd be stoked.

Those photos to me are just so genuine and have more meaning than a digi cam or a fancy shmancy joint. Plus, they discontinued their production, so they're only gonna get harder to find.


If your willing to spend that much, purchase as much film for is as possible too.

For christmas I got my dad some process paid Kodachrome. It's probably the most famous colour film in the world but it's gone out of production due to lack of demand. There's only one place left who develop it now as well. That doesn't come close to your budget but I thought it was a pretty cool present for someone who had never had the chance to use it yet.
