Yesterday I decided to take the bull by the horns and buy a home development kit for black and white film. My Pinhole Moments project has developed into a hobby as well as a final year university project.
After researching developing black and white film at home I spoke with a few professionals and hobbyists, as well as YouTubing the heck out of it. I thought, “yeah, I can do that” and went down to Silver Print in Elephant and Castle to look at the kits and chemicals. They were very helpful and really friendly, I can’t recommend them enough! I ended up buying the kit and chemicals and even developed my own 120 B&W film that very evening. (Results coming soon)
There is something beautiful and exciting about developing your own photos. I did feel a bit like Jesse Pinkman mixing up the chemicals but that’s all part of the fun.
