By the way, this guy, James, picked up on coffee developer in a big way. He found that addition of a small amount of vitamin c to the brew eliminates the staining and shortens the development time considerably. I haven't tried that yet, because it also slows the film speed.

Just fyi.

chris this is an awesome shot, full of energy and the photographer seems to literally glow on top of the background. i love the tonality of infrared film, i have to try it sometimes myself!!

I love contact sheets.

I have been thinking I want to start scanning one from every roll I develop. And in order. Worst problem being that I use those six wide archive sheets, and that won't fit on my scanner.

I used to do them on photo paper, so I had to keep the area within 8x10. Now that same size fits my scanner perfectly. Unfortunately I only get 35 frames in a sheet, so there is always at least one (more likely 2) frames orphaned. I keep a sheet just for them. Like your 'test strip' frames, they are often unique.

Of course the F5 has the option of stopping at 35 or 36 frames, but I like to wring every last bit of film out of a roll.
