    I just finished up some 4 color gum/cyanotype prints. They turned out okay, but would have been better if I had used digital separations of a color image instead of in camera separations on B&W film. Also, I came to the conclusion I need to find a new red/magenta pigment. My old one is staining too much.

    Hi, my last roll was also my first after almost 30 odd years.

    It was kentmere 100, developed in Rodinal 1 to 50 in a Paterson tank for 15 minutes. The most difficult part was keeping the temperature to 68. It kept dropping to 60 - 65, so I increased time to 20 mins.

    Waiting for the film to dry but it looks fine. It's definitely not under developed or under exposed, but I can't remember the difference between an over exposed or over developed film? ( don't think its either)

    I had a productive weekend in the darkroom. Pushed out 20 or so 5x7 prints from the Rolleiflex, mostly beach people stuff.
    I was working my way back through negatives from the most recent rolls, I made it a couple of months back to nearly catch up with myself.

    I then had my first attempt at toning, using Ilford Selenium Toner on my Ilford MGFB (5x7) Matt paper.

    2 minutes with 1:9 dilution seemed to work with minimal colour change.
    3 minutes and I could see a pinky-purple colour change coming in, though looking again at my now dry prints in the cold light of day and they don't look as severe as they did at the time.
    In direct comparison to untoned ones, the difference seemed more stark. My intention was to give them added richness/longevity, not a colour change.

    I'm hoping my 2 minutes at 1:9 was enough to convert the silver, the next step is flattening them again and putting them in mats.

    Congrats on your return to film Derek.

    Tried stand developing (for the first time) Kentmere 400 which I shot at 1600, in a metal tank. First time I ever used a metal tank.

    1 hour in Rodinal 1+100 with 1 min initial agitation.

    Tones came out pretty good but there are some very clear shrouding on the film. Also some scratch marks from me having some trouble using the metal reels. Now I gotta shoot some more 1600 and try to develop it conventionally and see which one feels better to me.

    Found a couple of funny keepers during scanning of a test/goof-off roll of D100 of my faithful subject (my dog).

    So of course when I get everything dialed in, they'll get the full archival/toning treatment, 'cause she likes to be a superstar.

    Some postcards for the soon to be launched current round (hope I printed the right number).
    And a 9"x14" enlargement from a 6x9 pinhole image - complete with local bleaching and sepia tone.

    Last night I printed a 9x12 (on 11 X14 ) of a very old abandoned bridge. It is inundated most of the time by a reservoir. I used a 6x7 negative from RZ, TMY, XTOL. Did split grade exposures, using my miracle Metrolux II, and the last version of a Zone VI /Calumet VC cold light. Printed on Ilford Art 300, Bromophen 1:3 , toned in Kodak rapid selenium toner 1:3. Part of this was proving to myself that I could use old school hardening fixer to keep the print from sticking to the belt on my Pako dryer. I used 2 bath Kodak F6 fixer 4 minutes in first and second bath. Went right from the fixer into hypo clear, for maybe a minute, then directly into the Se toner, toned lovely at 68F in 3-4 minutes.
    All the rubbish about hardener in fixer and toning, bah humbug! It takes a little longer to tone. The hardener keeps the prints from harm while washing and drying.
    Best Regards Mike

    Hi,

    I exposed some sheets of old (expired 1943) Kodak Panatomic in 6.5 cm x 9 cm nitro film.
    Made by Kodak Berlin, I didn't know that there was german made Kodak film those days.

    The images look fine for that old film:

    Still a friendly Film, like low speed Tri-X.

    Made using an vintage microscope camera for The Miflex Project: <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/136145166@N02/albums/72157686135321996">www.flickr.com/photos/136145166@N02/albums/72157686135321996</a>

    Thanks a lot, Wilmarco.

    I exposed it at 0 ISO.
    Development: 6 minutes in Rodinal 1:50 @ 18°C in a tray
    A yellow-green filter was used with 100W lamp.

    20 more sheets are still to be exposed. :smile:

    Thanks Black Dog. Yes Ektar is good stuff. I like it better than Portra 160 for its grainlessness, palette and post-processability.

    Today I developed a 36exp of Agfa Superpan 200 (Expired ‘84) with 25yo+ Rodinal (1-25 8:40 19/20c) in my Rondinax which was manufactured when the 3rd Reich was a thing and shot with my 60 years old self-CLA’d Topcon 35-L. Today was a good day.

    Just finished 24 sheets of 4x5 Ektar 100, two rolls of 120 and One roll of 35mm using a Unicolor kit.

    The 4x5s had only one issue, I dropped one on the floor and scratched it.
