Development issue

  1. Hi all,
    I had this problem with several frames on the last roll of Kodak tmax 400 pushed to 1600. I've developed the same film before without any issues, so I'm not sure what happened. It's like a light copy of higher contrast items in a frame is created to the side of the item LRM_EXPORT_20171214_201007.jpg (sorry.. not sure how to describe it, it's the the left of the Anderson's sign). I'm using rodinol for 11 minutes and tf4 for 4 minutes. Agitating first 30 seconds for dev, then 10 seconds each additional minute and 30 seconds each minute while fixing. Thanks for any help!!

    It does look like a faint second image; a bit neat to be a chemical effect. Have you examined the negatives? It would be good to check the shadows are there on the film. If not, it must be something from scanning.
     
  3. Makes sense, I will double check and report back. Thank you!
     
  4. I'm pretty sure you are right! I looked really close at the negative and see no trace of the shadows.. scanning issue, thank you so much!

    No problem! But now to the real issue: frozen custard?
     
  6. Must be a printing/scanning issue since only it's only the shadows that are smeared or double-imaged.

    If it was a camera fault I would expect the highlights to be smeared into the shadows, not vice-versa.

    Whatever, it's certainly not a processing fault.

    Frozen custard!? Is that even a thing? Is their microwave broken?
    Or just their customers' teeth.
     
  7. Thank you both, and yep, frozen custard.. Buffalo has it's specialties, this being one of them. It's really just soft serve.. maybe that's a Buffalo only thing too now that I think about it? Lol!
     
  8. Frozen custard!!!! Apparently you have never been to Wisconsin. It is so much better than boring old ice cream.
