Double development

Post by Omar.Morales »


Normally, I develop with Ansco 130 or Ilford ID-78, either cool or warm tone.

I would like to do double development using either Anasco 130 or Ilford ID-78 and Ilford Contrast FF or some equivalent.

Do you have any suggestion?

Thank you,
Omar Morales.-

Paul Caponigro experiments with different developer combinations to create unique tones for his exhibition prints. I am not familiar with Contrast FF so it would be hard for me to advise you. I would suggest that you try one warm/neutral tone developer with one cold tone developer and see how you like the tonality and color.
