Development Time Test
All these shots were taken back to back over about a 2 min period using Tri-X 400. No settings were changed on the camera – but each picture was developed in a separate bath from 7 mins to 12 mins at a minute difference between each.
What is the biggest surprise is that 5 mins isn’t making as big a difference as I thought it should do on HC-110 dilution H.
I haven’t changed any lightness, levels, contrast on the pictures and they were all scanned in the same conditions and settings.
So what should I be developing at for the best image -perhaps 12 mins is not enough as the shadows don’t seem to be getting enough detail.
