That Pyrocat developer is really working well for you, Ken. Lovely picture.

Has that house pictured been in a movie about the Kennedys? It looks vaguely familiar.

Thanks, Phil. I really like it with Tri-X, which I've rediscovered. 

It's not far from Newport, where John and Jackie were married, so perhaps someone did use it.

This photo is from a series from some of my crazy, extreme photo adventures I  had photographing Mountains "Alpinists " and rock climbers. This is Alpes mountain range which is called   "Le Massive du Mont Blanc", Haût Savoir region  In France.  And this place is a White valley ( La Vallee Blanche - Chamonix ) the most beautiful region You must visit. I was very brave enough to carry my Medium format two lenses/ meters/ and a Canon EOS and a 50mm, a lot of films No tripod/ It is crazy when I thi

Bonjour Henri,   I still prefer black and white film (I use almost no colour). The advantages of digital don’t mean much to me. Seeing instant results is not so useful, since what comes out of a camera is always far from a final result, and the final result requires time and thought.   Film also continues to improve. The quality of available film and developers is as good as it has ever been, and it is still as competent as digital sensors of equivalent size.   I also much prefer silver g

On a week-long stay at the Faroe Islands, I took the ferry from Torshavn (the 'capital') to the southernmost island, Suduroy, and looked up potential shooting locations on the island. This image was taken a little before the sun was setting in the ocean, with wind from the west (left). With the uplift of the humid air at the cliffs, fog and clouds drifted over the island. A quite typical situation for the islands; the ocean can be more or less cloud free, but the islands are generally covered in

Hi Ken, 

I understand Pyrocat is a staining developer. When I tried those in the past I got problems with printing them on Multigrade paper as the coloured stain interfered with any metering attempts and was not consistent from one developing batch to the next . 
What are your experiences with printing (if any), and is the stain from Pyrocat coloured? 

Thx, Christoph

Hi Christoph,

Thanks for this. I have not printed with it. But even with negatives turned into digital negatives and posted here, it's been a bit odd. I've sometimes seen the red/blue residual cast that Pyrocat has (I believe PMK has a different colored staining) and sometimes not. But I don't reintroduce Pyrocat a second time as many do for PMK (I develop 1:1;100 for, IIRC, 11 min at 75 degrees for Tri-X at box). Perhaps the variation in the staining is due to the condition of my alkaline fixer?

Rolleicord I from 1934 - Ilford FP4+ (dev. in Rodinal 1+50)

Very nice. Rodinal works so well for this type of imagery

staten island ferry MV John F. Kennedy 2016

28mm well used; the empty space emphasises the distance between your protagonists, with lots of room for interpretations of what happens next...

I like the cool gaze and posture, which harmonies well with the industrial-paint background and this could be an interesting starting point for a story...
