Grainy, grainy, grainy

film_grain_alt_2I was looking for grain but never thought I’d produce grain this big! Film was out dated Kodak TMax 3200 shot during the day. Development was in Agfa Rodinal diluted 1:100 with agitation for the first minute and then stand development for 1 hour with three inversions on the half hour only. Fog levels were very high making these negatives difficult to scan and fairly difficult to print – this could well be the effect of out dated high-speed film rather than just the development alone. Though you can’t see in a web image this size (scanned from a darkroom print on Grade 5 Multigrade paper) the grain looks like its been stencilled on – by the way did I say this was grainy?
