I have had both good and bad fortune lately. I thought things were really looking up when i found this stash of photo paper ridiculously cheap (i won't tell you how much i got it for because you will hate me forever and never read this blog again). I saw an advert that someone was getting rid of some darkroom gear so i message them to see if they had any paper. They said they had a few odds and ends so i took a punt and we arranged a price. When the package arrived my head nearly exploded! Inside was an almost full pack of 8x10 Fotospeed Lith paper, a pack of Oriental Seagull, a few packs of Ilford MGIV RC VC, a pack of Kentmere Fineprint VC, some Ilford MG FB WT in 9.5x12 and 12x16, a pretty full pack of Kentmere Art Document, Some Foma papers in 12x16 and a full pack of 16x20 and some Fotospeed Fotolinen which i haven't been able to find much out about yet. And on top of that they sent me some unused Moersch Easylith! What an absolutely fantastic bundle to get in the post!
I haven't really done much else lately. I have been toying with doing some zone system testing to determine the best ISO and development times for my setup. It is something i should have done ages ago but, as you should know by now, i am somewhat lazy and it feels like i'm wasting film (even though i know i'm not). No doubt i will write a tutorial all about it (if it is successful). I really do need to get better at getting work done and getting this blog updated more regularly.
