    To follow up on the stand processed negs...

    ...now that they're dry and I've had a loupe over 'em, I have to say that they are really overdeveloped. This is my first go at stand development, and I suppose I was expecting a little more compensation.

    The images I really cared about and everything else with a short scale look great, beafy, but really nice. Skylit images in the afternoon also look good, hot, but printable for sure. Many of the longer scale images, and anything shot in shade with direct sunlight peaking through are borderline unprintable-unprintable, at least with my skill set. This is a contrasty film by nature. Next time I'll use a higher dilution and perhaps cut the 30 min mark aggitation.

    All said and done though, I'm really excited to see how these exciting new negs print!

    Pan F+ builds contrast very rapidly and it is easy to get negatives that are hard to print.

    Try IE25, 68F, 6min 45sec., agitate every 1 min. Dilution 1:50. I checked zones 3, 5 and 8 densities (25-30, 75-80, 125-130). Very easy to print.

    In my experience, it's also a lot easier to "pull down" an over-contrasty negative than to breathe life into a terminally flat one. I prefer to err on the side of overdevelopment - like my latest gallery entry.

    Amen to that!
