Thanks, Barry. That may be an excellent solution.
Cool, you can give me an ATL lesson.
20 rolls of 35mm film, when shot on assignment, can take me up to 3 months of hard work to develop and print on FB paper to the highest standard. But it's so much fun and rewarding.
Nice! I came back from a trip with about 125 rolls. In my case, a mix of 35 and 120. And I recently did 65 rolls of MF for a client. I have three large Paterson tanks: I put three rolls in each one and could therefore do 9 in a batch. Still, a lot of work. But that's why we do this, right? It's part of the process.
Take your time. That way you'll have the enjoyment of re-discovering scenes that your memory hasn't been able to retain. I get great joy when I look at some negs and discover that I have the pleasure of a forthcoming print to look forward to that I had forgotten about.
There are bound to be some prints crying out for hand colouring as well. Enjoy!
Looks like an ideal situation for using a replenishment regime.
117 rolls - that is 1.5 packages of X-Tol, or 1.5 bottles of T-Max RS
