Hey, I have a theoretical question in regards to my research towards my final project in film school.
After I have shot some black and white film, and say developed it (but not fixed, and still in dark tank), is there a way to chemically remove the latent image, or to 'reset' the silver to it's original state, so that in theory I can dry the film in the dark and then use it to shoot something?
How about after toning? Or bleaching (but no fixing - ie: converting to silver bromide but no removal of silver from the film)? (...)"
"How long to leave incorrectly flashed paper
I'm an idiot.
Last night while dealing with other frustrating issues in the darkroom I preflashed 10 sheets of Ilford WarmTone FB 8x10 at grade 1, or did I? Ahhh!
I left the filter out giving the paper about twice the exposure of a preflash. Given the relatively low level of the exposure, even with the filter out, do you think it would be safe to wait a week, let the latent image dissapear, and then do the preflash again and use the paper? (...)"
