My Process

Film

I take all of my photographs (unless otherwise noted) using a medium format camera. My personal preference for film is Kodak's Tmax 400 (TMY). I process my film in D-76 diluted 1:1. 

Darkroom

My kitchen doubles as my darkroom. I have a Saunders/LPL 670DXL enlarger that I use for producing my prints. My paper of choice is Ilford's fiber base paper in warmtone. I like the matte finish, but I will use glossy from time to time. I process my prints in Kodak's Dektol diluted 1:2 (and sometimes 1:3). I use Formulary's TF-4 Archival Rapid Fixer for my film and paper. It requires less washing time! I use a selenium toner for archival purposes.

Other Films, Processing, and Cameras

In addition to black and white, I enjoy shooting slides. My current favorite film is Provia 400. I use Arista chemistry to process the film. I welcome ideas on how to control the chemistry's temperature! 

I also shoot 35mm film in black and white and color. I have just started using Kodak's Portra 400, and I am anxious to see how it turns out.

As of recent, I have started using a digital SLR for most of my photography. I still shoot film but it's usually with my Polaroid Land Cameras (100, 250, and 440) using Fuji's FP-100c and FP-3000bw.
