I used to run some Caffenol back in the late 90s when I had a pile of way expired Panatomic-X. Mixed my batch out of Taster's Choice Crystals, sodium carbonate, and ascorbic acid. Negs resulted in fairly contrasty prints, so printed on Agfa paper in split development of LPD and Selectol-Soft, then selenium toned the paper.
Funny you should ask at this particular time.
Coffee has two primary uses in photography.Yes, I need at least two cups before going into the darkroom...
Oh, you mean use coffee to develop film in?
(Your English is perfect, I just need a cup of coffee.)
Just don't confuse the Caffienol with the coffee! Either for the film or yourself!! You just don't know what you could develop or whether it can be fixed...(no pun intended)Coffee has two primary uses in photography.
1. It is the officially recognized focusing fluid of photographers. Without it, we aren't that sharp and rely on photoshop too much.
2. It is the main ingredient in caffeinol. Without it, our world would be diminished somewhat as we would not see some remarkable images on photography websites.
Mix the two, and I am certain creativity will result!
Anyone tried Tea for developer?I had so much good tea in my cupboard, so when working from home I skipped going to the shop for those beans that disappear faster than fast in the grinder. I have now ejoyed my selection of tea for about half a year and this beverage keeps me satisfied during the work hours.
