At its most basic, photography and printing really is a simple process. The right chemicals and an understanding of the process are within almost anyone's ability to grasp. And though it becomes extremely nuanced, layered, and at times seemingly arcane once you start talking about camera types and emulsions and graded papers etc., photography is a hobby like anything else. It's my focus to bring a little simplicity and understanding to film photography, whether you're into lomography and toy cameras, or pinhole or fine art photography.
That said, I was overjoyed when I found this article about developing and printing using coffee as a film and print developer. It does not get much simpler than that! I'm excited to try this out sometime soon! If anyone has any experience in this process, leave some comments for others to read.
