In this tutorial, I want to encourage you to develop your film yourself. We will go through all the basics that are needed to develop a film.
Film and Developer
There are plenty of options for films. In the beginning, to get familiar with the whole process it does not really matter. After a while, you will find your personal favorite combination of film and developer. For starters are also a lot of kits available. For example, Fotoimpex in Berlin has several options and they ship worldwide.
What you need to start is a film, a developer, and a fixer. This kit is a good starting point and a film that can be used for a big range of photography. As a cheaper alternative, the Foma films are extremely good when it comes to the price value aspect. I shoot them for more than a decade and I am still amazed how good the results are. The film from Foma you can either find at Fotoimpex here or Foma also has its own website here.
The next thing you will need for all kinds of film development (Black and White and color) is a development tank. Also, there are good starter kits available at Fotoimpex. This kit also comes along with a different developer, so that you have already two different options and can compare the behavior and outcome of the process.
Besides a camera and a completely dark room, this is all you need. In the next tutorials, we go through the development process and further editing of negatives.
