[QUOTE=bowzart;639015]Hey Paul, better make that sulFITE. Sodium sulfide is the active ingredient of b solution of sepia toner. Wouldn't work. If not aware of the difference it might be easy to get the wrong stuff, especially if buying on the web because I'm sure Bostick and Sullivan and PF have both in their catalogs.
You know, using diafine, it is possible to cycle through several iterations of the process with water rinse in between. In this way, you can promote the shadow development while holding down the highlights. Just a thought. That is, A, then B, then thorough rinse, then A, then B, then rinse....
Sorry about the Fite rather than Fide, sometimes I post when I am rushed. I have not tried the multiple passes in Dianfine, I know that others report to get good results shooting TriX at 3200 with 2 or 3 passes. You would really make sure you give a good wash after B. At one point the pushed look with dark shadows without much details was in fashion.
