Hello, All,

My name is John. I tried developing some photos in the darkroom today. Too
bad they didn't come out. It looks like they were "overcooked". I think it's
because as I was developing, I noticed that the bottle contained the
developer in concentrate form. Whoops. I just dumped that stuff in there
pure. I'm not sure if I was supposed to dilute it (the little paper on the
wall to the right of the sink says to use in stock form for 9 minutes).
Also, I kept the safe lights on through much of the process, figuring the
tank was light proof once closed (without the small cap on). The only time I
left the lights completely off was when I was loading the film onto the
reel. Also, its possible that the camera didn't take the pictures properly.

There are just so many variables, I don't know which it was that was wrong.
I'd like to try again, but I'm out of "practice film". Anyone got any
practice film and/or suggestions on what do do better next time?


- John
