    One step at a time

    I think that this is good advice Alex. But I am excited.

    Photography, film and video are the things in my life where I become EXTREMELY OCD. I have little rituals:what goes where in the camera case, where the chemicals are stored on the shelves, how long I prewarm negatives when using the condenser head, and how I agitate film and paper.

    I have been thinking about the process for the past week or so. I've read the various versions of tube dev from BTZS to Sandy's to Mike's advice on the JandC tubes. I've read Michaels Azo articles. But, you're right when you advise focusing on one thing at time. Expose, develop, print.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Perhaps a stupid question ... why don't you order stuff in Europe, everything an ore you mention here is readily available at OK prices, granted you will have to pay for post but then again if you order enough, perhaps a joint order with friends and relatives the end price will be worth it ...

    I'm in the US. The Southern US. Virginia to be precise.

    One more thing Mike, and thanks for jogging my mind. Don't know how you intend to develop your negs, but my suggestion is to try using trays first. I think using tubes actually requires a little more finess than using trays. Give trays a try then go to the tubes when you get the basics down.
