First Roll of Black And White


I’ve just processed my first roll of black and white film.

Thanks to for the tutorial video. By far, the hardest part was getting the film onto the reel. I was using a stainless steel Adorama reel, and had practiced before hand but I still had some film touching film at the end of the roll. Fortunately, no pictures were harmed in the development process.

I’ve since purchased a Paterson reel from Calumet. It is significantly easier to get the film onto this reel. Perhaps with more practice I’d have gotten proficient with the stainless steel reel, but I’d rather just process, scan, and learn.

Little did I know that the Paterson reel wouldn’t fit into my stainless steel tank (D’OH!) so I should be getting my Paterson tank today.

I guess you live and learn.

All of the negatives exhibited dust and a few spots. So, I still have to overcome that as well.
