First off, please forgive me, this is about 120 film, I shoot a mix of 120 and 8x10.
I've just been processing a number of rolls of tmax 100 in tmax developer at 72 degrees using
hewes reels and tanks, fixed with sprint rapid fix, washed, perma-washed, photo-flo'd and dried.
ok, so here is the odd problem--after the wash there is a strange greenish/blue stain on the film, it seems to be
primarily on the emulsion side--it almost looks like the film wasn't properly fixed.
first solution, throw it back in the fix for a couple of additional minutes, but it was still there.
now the odd thing, is that if I wipe the negative at this stage with my fingers it goes away, but it's tricky to make sure it's all gone.
then back in the permawash and another final wash--
I'm using fresh chemistry and filtered water, I'm not sure what's causing this or where it's coming from--
I'll see if I can wrangle a photo of the stain--
