Following situation: Contre jour exposures (person in Canyon with sky in the background) with a point and shot (Yashica T1) on long (90s) expired FP4+. Most of the frames I exposed at 100 ASA, but also tried some at 50 and a few at 200. I have to fight 2 problems: high contrast and fog. As this is 35 mm film I would like fine grain too, so this is problem 3. A friend of mine used this same film (it comes from a 100 ft roll) and found increased fog level. (Haven't seen the negatives, he says contrast is reduced.) I thought best chances for the main problem, contrast, would be a 2 bath developer. But which to choose? DD-23, Stöckler, Thornton or D2D? To the choose between Stöckler/DD-23 and Thornton: Is FP4+ still considered a thick emulsion film or not? Which of them would give me the best reducing in contrast? As I understand D2D permits finer grain as it doesn't need sodium sulphite and has Na-ascorbate. Still this is subordonate to the contrast reducing problem. Would D2D give the same contrast? Also I read different opinions about reducing or increasing the time in the first bath. Most sources state if I want reduced contrast to take the film out of bath A after a shorter time. Other (fewer) sources say the opposite. If I understand correctly longer time in Bath A would further develop the shadow parts and that is one of the things I want. (It would be catastrophal if the face of the subject would be only a big black spot.) I wish to add a pinch of KBr to fight fog. Where does this go? Bath A or B?
