In this lengthy but highly detailed How-to Video: Daylight Black & White Sheet Film (4×5″) Development, Michael explains how to develop your own large format black and white sheet film at home *without* requiring a darkroom! This is an entirely ‘daylight’ process requiring only a few specialized pieces of equipment and patience. So grab a pen, a notepad, and beverage of your choice, and get ready to take notes! I hope you find it helpful.
SPECIAL THANKS TO: My good friend Robert Myers, who went to great lengths to help me complete this video and get it online.
And also SPECIAL THANKS TO: the great photographer and print maker Per Volquartz who encouraged and helped me get started with this process some years back. And finally, THANKS to my friend Scott Schroeder who conceived and designed the brilliant, inexpensive, and portable “drying cabinet” first seen at 40:20 in the video.
