How are the 1 hour places on the developing process? There are times I want a quick
set of prints, and would get better prints later if the film is ok. I assume it has
mostly to do with how well they keep their chemicals and how well they keep the
equipment in tune and clean.
Also, I seem to remember that you should overexpose slide film by 1 stop and
underexpose print film by one stop. Having to do with leaving more molecules in
place on one and removing fewer on the other. Is this out of date wisdom?? I guess
the way around the problem is to take three shots of each flower bracketing the
proper exposure by one stop on each side.
