    Post Your Images 4x5 or Larger Shot with Ilford FP4+

    I would like to see what others are doing with this film, FP4+. Also, if you developed it yourself, put what you used. Show your work off!

    The double exposure was a rookie mistake, but I didn't complain.
    I used stock Xtol in a tube.

    FP4+ is my backup to Acros in 4x5, and my primary in 8x10 since Acros is not available in that size in the US.

    I tray-process in Rodinal, usually 1:50.

    What information are you after? It would be a waste of time for me to go through several thousand negatives
    to post something without understanding your question.

    If you believe you can, or you believe you can't... you're right.

    Not really after a specific answer. Just would like to see others work with Ilford FP4+ and curious what they developed it with, if at all. I love Rodinal, but I had not thought of using it on FP4+. I would like to see that.

    I used Ilford PQ Universal Developer for most of these...my usual combo, though occasionally Dektol when I run out of the PQ. The Redwood and the girders are carbon prints, the other two platinum. 8x10 or 4x10.

    Lovely. The detail is fantastic. I bet the prints are exquisite if they look this good on this cheapo monitor. Thanks for sharing.

    Wow, you got some shadow detail on that hallway. Nice work. I've got some HC-110 and I was thinking of trying it with my FP4+. Do you use it as a one-shot developer or do you keep some stock stored?

    Just FYI -- I develop my negatives to print alt processes, so my negatives are very high contrast. My film/developer combos allow for this expansion, yet maintain good mid-tones. I do not recommend using Ilford PQ Universal or Dektol developers for negatives destined for enlarging (enlarged grain). Another one:

    Last Light, Yosemite Valley, Yosemite Falls.
    4x10 Platinum/Palladium print

    Always one-shot! That and the syrup form (no having to deal with stock/working solution blah blah blah) make up the bulk of the appeal of HC-110 to me. Being a compensating developer at extreme dilutions is icing on the cake.

    That is good to know. I've played with Cyanotypes (I know, kid stuff) a little and have done some reading on other alt processes. I hope to try them some day. Thanks for the insight. This is cool.
