some times the prints from the b&wCN (c-41 b/w) can have a pulpleish blue color to them because they usualy print the photos on color paper but once you haave you darkroom set up your prints will look better (no purple color) just to give a heads up
it's always nice to see a youngin joining the ranks
Adorama.co has ilfostop for around $7+ship
check them out and freestylephoto.biz freestyle doesnt have ilfostop but they have an asortment of chems paper and film good luck and keep shootin and to agree with those above posting in the forums get way better response
You will get a lot more help and visibility if you post in the main forums. Welcome to APUG!
Hi, good to hear you like b/w. where do you live? I might have an old enlarger you can have. I'm in NJ in the US.
thanks a lot guys!
btw i am bit older then u were richard when u set up your first darkroom.
if i were to use the ilfostop, where would i get it and how much is it?
I just use Ilford Ilfostop, which has no scent, and also has a dye in it to tell you when it is used up. You can also rinse the film a few times between development and fixing.
Welcome to the wonderful world of B&W photography! I don't know how old you are, but I set up my first darkroom when I was 12 in a spare closet in the basement.
To answer your question, you don't need stop bath for film. I simply fill the developing tank with plain water, agitate it a few times, drain, and repeat a second time. Then fix.
I suggest too that you will get more answers if you post your questions in the forums rather than in a blog. Good luck with your darkroom.
Best wishes to you as well.
APUG is indeed addictive.
You'll recieve far more help if you post this in the 'Darkroom Equipment' section of the forum.
Well spotted, thanks. I'm not going to bring it up with them since they issue new ones every 3 months and we all know how quickly time likes to tick.
Domenico, just do it then.
