Dev Party #15 – We’re Going to a Bad Dev Party, It’s the Worst Dev Party that’s Ever Been On this episode of Dev Party, Vania stretches the limits of the ECN-2 (to breaking), while Eric discovers some mystery sheets that he shot at some point in the last year or so. As you’ll hear, the ECN-2 kits are great, but they don’t last forever! — Music by Last Regiment of Syncopated DrummersContinue reading “Dev Party #15 – We’re Going to a Bad Dev Party, It’s the Worst Dev Party that’s Ever Been”

Dev Party #14 – The Half-Hour Dev Party Hour

It’s another faceoff! On this episode, it’s a battle of the pyros! PMK vs. WD2D+ – who will come out on top?

Dev Party #12 – Dev Party Favorites

On a very special episode of Dev Party, we’re comparing developers! Specifically we’re comparing WD2D+ and HC-110 on Arista Ultra Edu 100 (Fomapan 100). We skim the history of the developer and John Wimberley, the photographer who formulated it. We also discuss how bias might effect our opinions of developers and emulsions. This was Eric’sContinue reading “Dev Party #12 – Dev Party Favorites”

Dev Party #11 – Fire Party! This week on Dev Party we’re trying a new-to-us developer! Well… that’s not quite true. You’ll see. It was Vania’s idea to give Pyro a try, so we both picked up PMK Pyro by Photographer’s Formulary. And well… you’ll see. Here on Dev Party, we are certainly used to and even welcoming of failures.Continue reading “Dev Party #11 – Fire Party!”

Dev Party #10 – Dev Party of Four (by Five)

We are twinning today! On this episode, we both shot on Ilford HP5+, we’re both devving in Rodinal, and we both try to talk you in and out of making the switch to large format. Not exactly offering helpful advice, we wander through the ways that large format is different from the smaller formats. ForContinue reading “Dev Party #10 – Dev Party of Four (by Five)”

Dev Party #9 – Dev Party Out of Bounds We’re doing something a bit different this session of Dev Party – we’re stand developing color! What’s that, you say? Is that even a thing? Well it is. Sort of. First, stand developing usually (always?) means diluted developer and longer times with zero-ish agitation. For instance, a lot of folks stand develop with Rodinal,Continue reading “Dev Party #9 – Dev Party Out of Bounds”

Dev Party #8 – We’re Gonna Have an FP Party Tonight! Alright! Let’s talk about Ilford’s FP4+! But let’s not just talk about it, let’s shoot and develop it! This is a pretty laid back party, but sometimes parties have to be a bit laid back. Vania: IG, Flickr, Zines Eric: IG, Flickr, Zines All Through a Lens: IG, Website

Dev Party #7 – Dev Party For Your Right to Fight

Well that escalated quickly. We went from “hey there’s this weird flu thing” to “nobody leave their damn houses ever” in like a week (basically). So we’ve decided to back up a bit and give folks who have never developed film before a somewhat wordy overview on how to do it, and what specifically toContinue reading “Dev Party #7 – Dev Party For Your Right to Fight”

Dev Party #6 – Dev Party and Bullshit

It’s an real quick (sort of) Ask Us Anything episode of Dev Party! We field a handful of questions from listeners while developing some film. Vania’s taking on Fomapan something or other, while Eric developed some Ultrafine Extreme 400 at box speed. Both HC-110! The questions range from stuff about C-41 stand development to scannersContinue reading “Dev Party #6 – Dev Party and Bullshit”
