1st min. constant slow agitation. after every 30 seconds 2 agitations. then a stopbath with water for 2 mins. and then fixer for 6 mins continuous agitation.
I feel like the pictures end up too dark but i followed what the light meter said. All the pushed pics I've seen show a high contrast and in my case they're just very grey. any tips on what i might be doing wrong?
