I have been lurking for quite a while and have been very interested in the answers to GreyWolf's questions regarding just starting down this road. A little background first
I will be using 4x5 and 5x7 negs. Nothing larger for a couple of years at least.
Negs will be developed in pyro as soon as I figure out which I need-
Tray developing to begin with until i decide if I like this then the tubes. I will be starting with kailitypes then to PD
For the process I will need
1 tray developer
2 trays fix
1 tray hypo
1 tray long wash
Do I need seperate trays for each process?
For coating I will need
2- 2in. Richeson brushes-one for each process
Chemicals (I have Photographers Formulary kalitype, and Pd)
Paper-got it from Bostick and sullivan and it was recomended so no problem
I live in the Southwest so Sunlight is not a big problem and I have been testing for a couple of months. If I like the process I will build a lightsource
For those few cloudy days like today I will use one of two 1000watt metal Halide bulbs I use in an indoor garden inside my classroom
Did I miss anything? I'm sure I did but for the life of me I cannot figure it out.
