    2 bath developers are very worthwhile, depending on what you are trying to do.

    i sometimes use a hard working and slow working developer together, one develops the contrasts
    and hard bits, the other the highlights and soft bits ... it takes a little goofing around but it is well worth
    the risk of screwing things up ...

    like with everything in photography, YMMV
    and what works for one person, might not work for another ...

    Yet another way to eliminate air bubbles from processing water is to use a replenished developer. It rests enough between processing cycles that air is virtually eliminated.

    Thomas;

    This is exactly in line with what I have learned while working on a photofinishing lab.

    And, NEVER use a prewet with a divided developer. I have said that many times in many places.

    At my stage of photography, the simpler the better. I am so ignorant, I don't need anything complicating things any more than they already are. Maybe in a couple of years. Not now.

    John, I really appreciate your trying to help, though. You are an absolute star.

    I don't like the digital/analog divide. I prefer to think electronic/chemical.

    When I get around people who know chemical photography, it's really intimidating. They know so much more than I and seem to take it all for granted that I should know all this stuff that I don't. They're worse than motorheads. You and PE aren't like that. That is really special. Thank you both.

    Yeah, thanks. I think sometimes that I get too technical though.

    PE, for me, you can never get "too technical." It just pushes me to understand it.

    Keep on keepin' on.

I also got a bit of Aunt Mary's laundry, and Beau Jack, the dog, peeing on a fence, and a row of potted tuberous begonias on the porch and 78 trees and a million pebbles in the driveway and more. It's a generous medium, photography." -- Lee Friedlander
