Hey everyone. I'm developing 400 ISO HP5. All my negs (two tries) have resulted in faint images. The numbers that tell you the film brand and ISO rating and such don't show up on the film strip's rebate.
I use a recipe of:
150ml Water, 6 rounded Teaspoons Instant Coffee (15 grams)
200ml Water, 4 leveled Teaspoons Washing Soda (8 grams)
Mix all together, add 2/4 Teaspoon of Vitamin C (4 grams)
20C / 75F
Let solution stand for about 5 minutes to clear microbubbles.
Dev. 10min (agitate 1min, 10sec each 1min)
Fixer / 4min / 500ml (agitate as developer)
100ml fixer / 400ml water
I don't think it's my recipe or my dev time because the film name would develop in the rebate along with the faint images wouldn't it? I'm thinking it might be a light leak in my changing bag.
Can anyone help me out?
