A New Path To Follow
A friend recently gave me 20 rolls of 120 Ilford XP-2 film. This is a Black and White film that is intended to be processed with what is called C-41 color chemicals in a photo lab. Not living close to a lab that processes 120 size film, I decided to see if I could do that myself using standard Black and White chemicals. After some research and asking a few questions I came up with a method for using Kodak HC-110 BW developer and when I tried this the results were stunning. Here are a few samples taken with a vintage Yashica TLR camera. I scan my own negatives. I'm very pleased with the image quality.
