I finally decided to try and develop my film rolls by myself. I did this since I wanted to try and cross-process my films easily. Find out how I did it!
Although I had to grope in the dark and experiment a bit, I succeeded and developed my films somehow!
- Naniwa color kit N
- liquid thermometer
- LPL developing tank, reel
Prepare the the color developing liquid and the bleach fixing solution and place it in a container.
Take the film roll that you want to develop and place it in the developing tank reel. Take note that you need to do this in a darkroom. When you have closed the top of the tank, you can already work in a lighted area.
You have to keep the color development liquid at 32℃. Pour the liquid into the tank and use the stirrer to mix the solution. Stir the solution slowly and knock the bottom of the tank once in a while to get rid off the air bubbles. Do this for about 5 minutes. Afterwards, pour out the development liquid back in its container.
Pour the bleach fixing solution into the container. Do the same procedure as you did with the previous step but this time, do it for 6 minutes. Afterwards, pour out the bleach fixing solution back to its container.
You can now remove the film roll from the reel. Gently take the roll and wash it under running water. Wipe it down softly with a sponge and use the clips to hang it up to dry.
