Home Dev For The Mad Scientist!! Part1


I decided a few months ago that I would get into some home developing, and i love it!!!! Here’s a little bit about C41 Developing.I love being a mad scientist!!

It took a while getting all the bits and pieces together for my mad scientist experiment. The bottles, Patterson Super 4, C41 chemicals etc , but its all been worth it!!

I love the fact that you have created the photograph 100 percent and I feel proud that i have been able to do it ( sometimes not so successfully!! haha) I love the mystery of what will come out even more than waiting for them to be developed at the shop!!!

The first lot came out a bit funny but still sort of worked!! the second and third try came out much better as you can see in the Supersampler snaps. I don’t have a dark room or any technical bits and bobs, but it works for me, and i dont really do it do the full extent of the instructions!!

For the C41 I used the Rollei Digibase kit, an all in one kit that has everything you need. Here are some of the results.
