A quick test shot to to see if home developing 8x10 is feasible (it is!).


Technical info: Shot on an Agfa/Ansco 8x10 Studio Camera with an 18" (457mm) Bausch & Lomb Plastigmat Portrait Lens. This camera doesn't have a shutter, so it was shot with the lights out and just flash. Lens was wide-open at ƒ/5.6, very small octobox on AB1600 near-minimal power just above and to left of camera. AB800 with 4-foot strip box at minimal power camera right. Triggered by hand (wirelessly). Metered at ƒ/8, but bellows extension needed about 1 stop.


FP4+ rated at ISO 125. Developed in Perceptol 1:1 dilution at 68°F for 12m 45s in hand-rotated Jobo 2830 tank.
