Hi all, I am looking to expand or change my processing ritual. I've been "doing it by the book" for a while now, and I would like to know if there's something I could do to get different (not necessarily better) results. More/less grain, more/less highlight/shadow detail, etc. Here is my ritual currently (btw, I use steel tanks and reels). I mostly use the Arista II Agfa film (I still have quite a few rolls left), but I also use Arista EDU Ultra and TMY occasionally (when I develop 120 film). -Pre-soak with constant agitation for ~30 seconds or so (tap water) -Developer: 1:18 dilution, 12 minute develop. Agitate for 8 seconds every minute. (I use Arista liquid concentrate developer). -Stop: tap water, ~3 minutes, constant agitation -Fix: 1:1 or 1:2 dilution, 5 minutes, agitate every 8 seconds. I use Arista powdered Rapid Fix. -Final stop, process similar to stop after developer -Wash: Remove lid from reel, allow it to fill up with fresh tap water, and let it flow for 5 minutes, dumping out tank about every minute. I realize this is a fairly vanilla setup. The only thing I would like to change is I would like to see a bit less grain. The images I've been getting are pretty grainy for 400 speed film, I think. I can scan in a print and show you if you care to see. Thanks!
