CHANGING BAG (27″X30″)

Paterson Changing Bag

The  Paterson Changing Bag enables you to develop your own film in Cawanol, without any need for a darkroom. Simply put your exposed film in the bag with a can opener, and load it onto a reel, put it in the Paterson Film Processing tank, and close the lid. Take it out of the changing bag, and your are ready to develop! – It helps to practice it first outside the bag, so try this with a cheap or expired film roll first. You could consider the Paterson changing bag your miniature darkroom. You can order it here.

 

PHOTOGRAPHIC PAPER SHEETS

Fomabrom 112 Grade #3 (N) Matte is a black-and-white fiber based photographic paper for general use, coated on a conventional double-weight 280gsm baryta paper base. The paper features high exposure latitude and an outstanding image stability. Due to the built-in natural optical brightener, a brilliant print appearance is achieved. This paper features a very rich half-tone scale over all contrast grades, a flat smooth white paper base and saturated blacks. The paper is manufactured using silver chlorobromide emulsion that gives neutral-to-medium warm tone to the silver image.
