Developing Adventures – Pushing Ilford XP2 400 to 800

Now that I am processing my own color film as well as my black and white stocks, I like having films that can all be developed together.

Developing Adventures – Kodak Tri-X with Kodak HC-110 and Ilford DD-X

I purchased Ilford’s Ilfotec DD-X on a recommendation to use when I was pushing film, such as the time I pushed Fomapan 400 to 800.

However, I wanted to see if… Continue reading Developing Adventures – Kodak Tri-X with Kodak HC-110 and Ilford DD-X

Developing Adventures – Getting Agitated

In todays Developing Adventure, I wanted to talk about pushing Ilford Delta 400 to 3200. I liked my results at 1600, and was afraid pushing it further would introduce more grain and contrast than I like in my work.
