To continue the process of developing the film, we must go through a long process. First, using a beaker/measuring cup fill up 5oz. of water.
After having 5oz. of the water, fill other 5 oz. of D76. Now you will have 10oz inside the beaker/measuring cup.
After having 10oz, grab a theromometer and measure the temperature of the liquid. When the temperature is found, depending of the temperature, you develop your film at different times(see the chart on the wall). You could get 9 mins or sometimes 6 mins of developing time, it al the depends on the temperature of the liquid. After figuring out your time, pour the liquid inside the canister and immediately start timing it. The first 30 seconds, agitate it and then after every minute agitate it for 5 seconds. Do this until the time runs out and then pour it down the sink.
After using D76 with water, you must use the measuring cup again and fill up 10oz of water. Pour the water on the canister and agitate for 30 seconds. Pour the water down the sink. Using the measuring cup one last time fill up 10oz of fixer. Pour it in the canister and set timer to 5 minutes, agitate it for 10 seconds for every minute. After that's done, don't pour it in the drain, instead pour it into the "Recycled Fixer" jug.
After doing the process with all the liquids, remove container top and place into hurricane washer.
After being in the hurricane washer for 3 minutes, take it out and put it in the photo flo. Leave it inside there for 30 seconds. After the time is done, take out the film from the photo flo and remove the reel too.
Grabbing a clip, attach silver weight to the bottom and attach clothes pin to the roll of film. Put the film inside the dryer and leave it in there overnight.
The next day, cut out the film so it could get inserted inside the sleeves. You may make a contact sheet so you could have a better vision on how your pictures came out.
To print out your picture, using a negative carrier you must insert the film inside and choose the picture you want to print out(as shown above).
This is the enlarger. The enlarger is where we are able to use our negatives to print out a picture. You can adjust the way you feel is best to print out a good Image.
In the enlarger you need to put in a contrast filter (1,2 or even 4 ). The filter lets out white or a pink color.
This is RC paper for printing. We use this paper to put our images on. At the enlarger, a light shines our negatives on the paper for a certain amount of seconds or minutes to create an image.
Grain Focuser: this helps us ensure that our pictures from our negatives are focused or clear enough to print. When you look through the grain focuser, your goal is to see a bunch of sand like black dots. The more darker the dots the more focused it is.
Example of how to use grain Focuser. After looking into the grain focuser, we grab a test strip so we can test our picture to see if it comes out the way we want it. Normally test strips are done before the final picture. You try different seconds and filters and compare each strip to eachother. The speed easel holds the RC photo paper in place when you begin to print your image.
Burn and dodge tools - burning and dodging helps make your pictures lighter or darker when necessary. Here we are using a dodging tool to make the hair lighter than the rest of the image.
