  • Now that the film is in the tank it is safe from light, so it doesn’t matter the lighting conditions in the dkrm.

  • Holding the tank at a slight angle, pour in FILM DEVELOPER until full.

  • Watch the clock. You will keep the developer in for 7 minutes, AGITATING once every 30 seconds.

  • Pour the developer down the drain.

  • Next, fill the tank with water from the faucet for a STOP BATH.

  • Agitate for 15 seconds; pour out; repeat.

  • Third chemical is FIXER. Holding tank at a slight angle, pour FIXER into tank until full.

  • Watch the clock. Keep the fixer in for 11 minutes, agitating once every minute.

  • Pour the fixer BACK into the bottle you got it out of.

  • After fixer it is safe to bring your film into the light, so take the lid off the tank and take your reel of film out.

  • Place the reel/film into the WASH TUBE.

  • Let the flowing water wash your film for at least 5 minutes.

  • Carefully (because other film might be on top of yours) remove your reel.

  • Put the reel/film into a tank filled with PHOTO FLO. (everyone will use the SAME tank of photo flo--no lid is necessary)

  • Swirl it in the photo flo for 5-10 seconds.

  • Remove the reel from the photo flo.

  • Carefully, take your film off of the reel.

  • Carefully, squeegee the excess water and photo flo off the film with your FINGERS over the SINK (not the floor!).

  • Once the excess water is off, take the film into the classroom.

  • Put your NAME on a piece of masking TAPE.

  • Tape your film to the bar in the white film closet at the back of the room.

  • It will take about 15-20 minutes for your film to completely dry. You’ll know it’s dry when it curls as it hangs.

  • Once your film is dry, take it down.

  • Get a NEGATIVE SLEEVE from the counter.

  • Cut your film into strips of 5 frames, and put it into the negative sleeve.

  • You’re done! Keep your film in a safe place until your group is in the darkroom to make prints.
