    Sooner or later in every darkroom session, the print tongs slip off the side of the tray and end up dunked in the liquid. It's always either the developer or fixer, never the water!!

    Make sure you have your iPhones OFF when you are struggling to get the film onto the reel
    I use mine as a timer and it is always with me, not always flight-mode :P

    I was developing a roll for a class assignment, grabbed the "developer" happily went through the processing, and when dumping out the chemical, the water was purple (Hp 5+), turns out I used the Hypowash instead of developer.

    Well, funny thing is.... I never noticed that the heating element glowed red before. Not with the red safe-lights on

    Been processing quite a number of color contact sheets in roller drums lately. Mostly 8x10 but a handful of 11x14 as well. Unfortunately my 11x14 drum needs new rubber bands and not once or twice, but _three times_ being in a hurry I threw it up on the roller unit, turned around and was splashed with developer as it slid sideways and fell to the floor.

    I use the Massive Dev Chart app on my phone, which has a handy "dim-green" mode. It is perfect for timing tray development of sheet film. (I keep the phone on a work table a few steps away from my trays, so there is virtually no light bleed to my film) ...until my daughter texts me to say hi, (love that girl.) at which point the screen glows its normal bright daylight colours and I have to dash to cover the it before I destroy a sheet of film.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    End of printing session
    1) Put funnel on empty 1L bottle to fill stop into
    2) Pour 1L stop from tray into funnel which drains into bottle
    3) *distract oneself*
    4) Pour 1L left over dev from tray into funnel
    5) Watch in amazement the funnel overfill with a nice dev/stop mix
    6) Smile, clean up....he

    Reminded myself again why you should never develop film when you're tired.

    Working solution for Rollei RHS-DC works out to 20ml RHS + 300ml water per 35mm film. Doubled that for two films, 600ml water, and, you guessed it, 20ml RHS. Talk about thin negs...

    Finished developing a 36 exp roll of film, hang it up in the bathroom and forgot to close the door. Entered the bathroom about 90 minutes later to see one of my cats having a great time shredding the negatives. She thought it was a great toy!

    House shopping last summer. The one thing I wanted was a real space for a darkroom. House I bought has absolutely no space for a darkroom at all.

    You have to buy what the wife wants.
