C-41 Developing – A journey

At home film development has always been a passion of mine. I’ve done plenty of black and white developing in the past, but color developing has always scared me. I always viewed it as some unattainable thing.


I will be documenting this endeavor in multiple stages:

  • Initial research
  • darkroom setup
  • chemical mixing
  • first roll of film developed
  • high resolution scans and final thoughts

I started by ordering a 1L kit of c41 chems. Along with some beakers, a long thermometer, and a few light tight containers. Research into developing was a fairly straight forward process. Every blog post and website stated:

  • Mix the chemicals at the proper temp and in the proper order
  • store in light right containers
  • Replenish chemicals when you notice less than ideal developing outcomes.
