View Full Version : Development by inspection and placement of lamp

I have already a green safelight placed behind me at the side, making it easy to evaluate the negative on the base side. I know there are times you need to use transmitted light to see the highlights if they are few.

Found this video on Youtube

He evaluates the negative right in front of the lamp, a couple inches away. Is that normal? Should be at least 3 feet away? He uses a 7 1/2 W bulb, but is that dim enough? Looks very user friendly to do it this way though.

I use ABC Pyro myself.
