Developing Adventures – Pushing Kentmere Pan 400 to 1600

In my last Developing Adventure, I talked about pushing Kentmere Pan 400 to 800 and explained that it is a film stock manufactured by Ilford as a more affordable alternative to their HP5 400 Plus film, which is usually my go-to black and white film.
