What to do after you can’t go to the lab anymore but you still want to keep making art

Step 1: Obvious Supplies

  • Glass or plastic bottles for chemicals
  • Beakers for chemicals
  • Tank and reels (*NOT the kind with the huge tabs)
  • Thermometer
  • Temperatured Controlled Water
  • Camera Changing Bag
  • coat hangers, clothespins and a place to hang film
  • A cool dark place to store all of this stuff

Step 2: Not so obvious chemicals

DEVELOPERS

STOP BATH

  • You can use water!

FIXERS

Step 3: Development

Step 4: Scanning

As a general rule, try to eliminate as much of the scanner's "corrections" and "profiles" as possible

Recommended scanner software: Vuescan
Possible snake oil? - scanning glass

Step 5: Instagram Glory

remember to use a minimum of 50 hashtags!!
