7th April 2016, Its been a few years but I was guided through the processing and timing. 1:1 = 50/50 The film container was 1.5L So I prepared the chemicals 750ml of Developer + 750ml of water. Stop 1.5L batch of water and 1,5L of fixer. In the dark, I remove the plate film and fit 2 shots into the agitator seal the lid so it is light safe than with the lights back on. Referring to the charts on film type and exposure time I start the first 8 minutes in the developer agitating every 30 seconds for 15 seconds. Then 2 minutes in the stop followed by 8 minutes in the fixer. The fixer can be reused so it was re containered. To my success, the development went very well and I have a great negatives to create a few test exposures with. Over the darkroom to I set up the neg plate and timer, set the contrasts 4, 4, 4 as a starting point. Then do test exposures at 30, 20 , 10 seconds. I liked the tonal range at 20 but a few areas lost some detail in the final test I went 14 Seconds with a bit of dodging. It is a lost of effort but worth every minute working with film I should do more of it.
