Home Dev For The Mad Scientist!! Part 3

2011-08-15 1

I love being a mad scientist!! Now for my third installment, here’s some Cafenol Goodness for you! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

I decided a few months ago that I would get into some home developing, and i love it!!!! 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!!!

This time i decided to try the Cafenol b&w developing. I had no idea how this was going to turn out, but i decided i wasn’t going to buy proper developer for it. Its more fun being a mad scientist!! hehe. The results were, well wrong….. I think i used a fixer that wasn’t quite right for the black and white film but i still sort of got some images.

Cafenol in a mixture of coffee, vitamin c and washing soda. A simple cheap alternative to me paying £6 per roll. Here are the strange results…..

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!!
