Have just spent the last 2 hours surfing around, mostly reading forums on DIY processing. There’s a ridiculous amount of information out there. Found a great forum at photo.net which seems to be an all round great source of info:
There’s a heap of other useful forums there as well.
A lot of people seem to be recommending D-76 as a good developer to start with. Also some repeated advice was to get to know a developer well first before chopping and changing.
Reading lot’s of conflicting info about powders versus liquid. I think I will post on the forum to see what people have to say about all that old powder I’ve got. It’s probably out of date but might be fun to experiment with.
