After getting into film photography a while back I recently decided I wanted to develop my photos myself. I don't want to print myself or anything like that, just open up my 35mm canisters and develop them using the paterson development tank. The goal is to save money on the whole lab fees, by just having my films ready and being able to see what's on it, before going to the lab and asking to print/scan specific photos
So I got the tank, Imma get the chemicals etc. But what I wanted to know was hands-on tips from people who already do it themselves. I've seen videos where people load up the film in the tank in complete darkness, isn't it possible to use a red light bulb for that?
