But ya know ... (you regulars know the drill. :smile: )

B&W film is easy to do yourself. All you need is a bathroom and under a hundred dollars of stuff, much of which you may already have. You don't need a darkroom, a closet or changing bag will do. You will need a bathroom and about an hour's time for your first time. Doing it yourself gives you incredible control over the image - so much it feels like you are post-processing from a bottle.

I wish I was able to do it myself. I would prefer to have taken a class..
For now, I'll send it out.

from raw chemicals I ordered from Artcraft in New York state:

I love the tone of these images.
Nicely done.
