Red Light in a Dark Room – Part 13

darkroom supplies

Thanks a lot to Joe for his very concise development routine for this weeks installment!

What is your darkroom? A room, closet or bathroom? Please tell us a bit about it.

I use a very large film changing bag as my darkroom, along with Paterson film tanks.

What’s your process, talk a bit about your developing routine, especially if it’s tricky.

Here is my routine, very simple and quick. I put my film camera in the changing bag, load the film into the Paterson tanks

Take the loaded tanks to my kitchen and start the process of development.

What’s your go to developer?

Ilford Ilfotec DD-X

What’s your all time favorite Film/Film developer combo?

Ilford HP5 and Ilford Ilfotec DD-X

What result/look does this give?

1950-1960 film look.

Have you tried or are you into any alternative processes, such as cyanotype?

Yes, right now at this moment I just received my tintype kit so I’ll be doing Tintype this week. I am signed up for a wet plate collodian workshop in April that I am really looking forward to.

What is the best processing tip you can give?

Develop a routine, a method, a system, makes the workflow much easier.
