Interesed in developing your own film but don't have a dark room and don't want to deal with toxic chemicals? In this class I will demonstrate how to develop your own black and white negatives using caffenol, a mixture of instant coffe, washing soda, and vitamin c. Caffenol produces interesting and dramatic results. You can see some examples here on my Flickr account: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjw8xwUK

I currently work for Flickr as a front end engineer, I help develop all the aspects of the site you see and how they function. I have always been into photography, taking a few classes in high-school and college, but working at Flickr has definitely fanned that flame. I have a random assortment of 35mm, 120mm, and Polaroid cameras I have collected over the years that I shoot with currently. I also develop my own black and white film using a homemade developer called Caffenol, which is made with instant coffee, washing soda and vitamin c.
I mostly shoot on a Nike D80 SLR and a Pentax K1000 on Ilford PANF+ ISO 50 B+W film.
