Thanks everyone for getting me started. For the last 2 weeks were, I was in the process of getting the setup ready. i.e to get used to the whole pipeline (from shooting to processing)
Yesterday I did my first real tray processing using HP5+. Two things I noticed:
-> Tray processing is definitely cost effective. I am thinking in 250ml, I can get 4 -6 sheets a go. Until I get experience, next few months I will go with 2 at a time.
-> I need to get/do few more things to make everything more smooth:
1. Need a dark cloth for focusing. My bath towel is a little bulky.
2. Need a way to store up exposed sheets (I don't have a spare box yet). Taking it out of holders, and straight to the dev is tricky. I was afraid of getting it scratched.
3. Def need a better way to keep time. I am thinking of recording a music and playing it in iphone
4. Agitation. Here, I am thinking consistency is much more important than perfect timing.
-> For carrying it around, I bought a think tank street walker pro. Very light bag and everything fits fine with almost 2/3rd of the space still free.
Overall I like it. I will need to take it out next week to see how everything fare.
