    Is that the general routine, to go directly from the developer into farmer's reducer?

    I would have thought you would fix your negatives and then visually determine that reducing/reduction was required.

    Well, yes, that is right and it is done in the light so that one may judge the image reduction.

    I've always understood that the negative/print had to be fully fixed prior treatment with Farmer's Reducer. I also thought the negative would fog in the light, if it wasn't fixed.

    Edit/Update: The darkroom cookbook By Stephen G. Anchell, page 101, Before attempting to reduce any negative, you should fix it with an acid-hardening fixer and wash it thoroughly.

    for all concerned I ran the film completely. That means through to fix. I also tried to reproduce the effect today. It did not work. I have come to think that light leaks or something may have solarized the neg. Since it was completely black when I finished the full development, stop, and fix I could not determine it's condition. When I did the bleach the image began to appear, perhaps already a positive. This still stays a mystery.

    Then it must have been the magic film pixies! It's a Springtime Miracle!

    I have a few pictures that something like that happened with development in caffenol. I still have no idea how I did it. Stuff happens.
