  • 1Description

The Film Developing Cookbook from Focal Press is a comprehensive manual and resource for all aspects of black and white film development, including information on the films themselves and the various chemistries used during processing. Authored by Steve Anchell and Bill Troop, this publication serves as a more focused companion to The Darkroom Cookbook and presents a wealth of information dedicated to traditional film development. In addition to simply providing resource data, the authors also take subjective stances on processing and evaluation techniques, developing a personal aesthetic, how to work with T-grain emulsions, and discuss and debunk many existing film development myths.
