HP5+, Rodinal, Minimising Grain ?
I was hoping to draw on the wealth of experience here.
I like to shoot HP5 and process in Rodinal (substitute) because I love the 'age' that it gives the images. Only problem is that I tend to get quite noticeable grain, (I previously processed FP4+ in Rodinal with great results).
Have read on many sites that this is common for this combination, but is there a preferred method to at least minimise the grain clustering?
Have consulted the 'Darkroom Cookbook' and 'Film Developers Cookbook'.
My method has always been Rodinal 1:25, 20c, 6 minutes, agitation first minute, 10s every minute after.
This is the result. Cheers :-
