Got my liquids - My first B&W film development

Wish me luck! this is my first B&W development.

T-max 100 & 400

I read that Photo-Flo is not needed with TF-4. Is that correct?

All recommendations and advice are truly welcome!

Re: Got my liquids - My first B&W film development

Any results you care to share? I'm debating on whether to develop my own B&W film at home, my only fear is that it'll never be as good as the lab, but then again, I may try and it could be better then the lab, ha!

Any advice you for someone who is looking to develop at home?

It is pretty easy to develop b/w film at home. The key to good results from home developing is to pick a method and stay with it. I'd recommend starting with rodinal or other common developer and a film 400 speed film. Freestyle sells a basic developing kit that has almost anything you might need. What specific questions do you have?

I don't have any questions just yet. I'm right at the point of where I'm on the fence. I've been doing a ton of research and seems pretty straight forward. Appreciate the advice about keeping it consistent with sticking to common developer and film speed. I only shoot with Kodak Tri-X 400 and push the film 2 stops at the lab.

I guess the only thing now is to actually give it a try. I will ping ya with any questions though.
