    Foma 111, which warm tone developer ?

    Hello,


    I have just received a box of foma 111 and tried this paper with dektol and selenium.
    The blacks are deep with the selenium toning but I find this paper much colder than the ilford multigrade developed in dektoln and in fact too cold.

    Would it be a good idea to use a warm tone developer instead ?

    Which one would you recommend, bromophen ... ?

    Thank you for your help.

    I've tested it with Ethol LDP 1+6 and Formulary (ANSCO) 130 1+1; both toned in Selenium 1+19 . I preferred it with the 130 developer - just slightly warmer and very pleasing. I find some of the papers labeled as warm-tone (Ilford et.al) a bit too much.

    lots and lots of ways....

    If you can wait, I'll ask my girlfriend tomorrow (maybe show you a couple of examples)..

    She makes magic in the darkroom, and normally uses FOMA.

    (Foma makes their own warm tone developer.. which certainly is warm!...)

    But also Moersch makes fantastic developers - and FOMA reacts beautifully to most!
