hehe. i hear you clear and loud
Oh and btw. I keep some aging concoctions in the fridge, never had "growth" in any of those, only the ones at room temperature start snarling at me after two days! Takes a bit longer to get the temperature up tho.
Hmmm...subject matter for a future NEAPUG workshop/meet-up?
thanks for the heads-up!
i've removed that weird jelly like stuff before thought of just smearing it on film and seeing what happens
but i decided throwing it away was a better idea
film will be processed slowly ...
The wierd globs is most likely mold, you better filter the rest! On the other hand, it being so organic (alive) now it could render some interesting results..
Looking forward to seeing the results!
Welcome back Chris... its good to see you here again!
A few random comments:
Walmart carries focusing cloths - they call them 'hoodies' - My wife got me one of the expensive ones from viewcamerastore.com and they are very nice too.
I prefer a changing tent to a bag for 4x5. It really helps to have the room to move your hands around inside the tent.
I've developed many different ways for 4x5. I now use a Jobo, but was quite happy with hangers for a long time. I went through a phase with BTZS tubes, and those work too. One nice thing about BTZS and HC-110, is that you can adjust contrast with dilution, which allows you to customize development on a sheet by sheet basis, even while processing 6 sheets at a time. I never bonded with tray development of negatives.
A sincere welcome back Chris, it's hard to know what to say I'm so sorry about your loss but hope your photography will help you to overcome your grief to some extent, and that of the rest of your loved ones will help to support each other to overcome yours and theirs.
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hear! Hear! Hear! Welcome back Chris and all the best!
