A couple of further trips out over the last two weekends have seen me refining my development technique for black and white film. The Ings images posted last week saw me aiming for a compensating/semi stand development approach in the HP Combi plan - seeking to exhaust the developer in the highlights. Fairly successful it was too.

I followed this with a couple of goes with the Paterson Orbital - aiming for a more normal development (continuous agitation with a full strength developer) for images with contrast ranges more like these two.

Final stage now is just to refine the development timings/exposure speed with some testing.
