Ok, here is are my questions, thoughts, concerns.......I'm back in the darkroom after a hiatus of 5 years. My damn wife got laid off and now I have to go back to work. Life sucks!! Everyone seems to have a favorite developer for film and paper. I've probably developed over 10,000 rolls of BW over the past 30 yrs. I've used d76, Microdol X, c76, ID11, Diafine, Acufine, Xtol, a few rolls with ABC Rollo Pyro, perhaps one roll with Rodinal. (those are the developers I remember) And I have always had good results. Sometimes different, but always acceptable. For printing, it has been lots of Dektol, plenty of Ilford MG Dev, Some agfa nuetol wa, maybe some Zone VI or Clayton stuff, Arista Premium Liquid Developer, etc...and like the film, have always had great results. I process in a Jobo CPP/ I usually do people. Lots of natural light for location. 120 film exclusively. Not sold on any film, but have preffered Ilford over the years. I just have started experimenting with the Arista Ultra (I believe is Efke??) (have others experienced the film looks blue??) So, do I have a question? Yes. err, I think I do. As to print devlps.....Will this Ansco 130 do that much better than other listed? I like warm tone paper and looks for portraits. Does it really make a difference? Use Ilford Paper, Liked Luminos, but that's gone now? As to film, any film best for portraits? that will give superior results?? I've found a properly exposed image, developed correctly, yields a nice negative that prints easily without any, or very little manipulation. Isn't that the real secret to a great print? Ok, fire away boys and girls. Tell me where I'm wrong and right. And to the 130 stuff, I looked at buying the bulk chemicals..looks like about 100 bucks to get most of the chems. Has anyone broken down the cost? Is PF the only place to buy it premixed? Graicias!!
