Homelab Behind the Scenes.
I hadn't processed film since high school, thus I was/am a bit rusty. To begin with, I used this guide HERE. I still have a printed copy of it covered in food and chemicals in my kitchen with my recipe books, in fact, and I refer to it if I'm (hungover) stuck. Its handy.
Chemicals are easy to pick up online, I get mine from Silverprint. Store them wisely, I had to throw some developer out because it wasn't kept airtight. Sad trombone. I always keep a bottle of water under the sink at room temperature for mixing developer as well, at this time of the year its a faff to get tap water to the right temperature.
Massive Dev app - its not cheap, but I'd be lost without it. You pop in the film and speed, developer brand, and you can fiddle around with temperature for when that bottle of water just won't stay at 20 degrees, and it gives you times for various stages of the process. If you plan to process film at home and you aren't good with numbers/maths, get this app. Its not cheap but I'd be lost without it.
I really, really hate scanning film, so I'm not going to go into that. It takes forever, and my scanner has started to do weird things like crop or totally skip frames - which is why I am blogging about this instead of blogging actual photographs this week.
