I purchased an enlarger this week and some film chemicals.
I was able to develop a roll of black and white for the first time, I think it was successful. I also used the enlarger to print a few pictures. I had a multigrade filter from ilford and used one which made the picture more contrast, which may have been a little too strong.
Here are my first 3 prints
I have a few questions about the chemicals. I have made dilutions into 250ml water, the bottles say they last only for 1 day when diluted. Is this true? How long would mixed up chemicals last, and how many times are you generally able to use developer/ bath/ and fixer?
My next question is about colour film. What different chemicals/process is involved in developing and enlarging basic colout film. What extra equpitment do i need for printing?
Thanks for all the previous help!
