Push It

Anyone wonder what pushing film does? Never tried it? Well. Come on, give it a try. Add some contrast to your photos. Who knows, you might like it. I have been trying to write an article on Pushing film, black and white specifically, for months now. Every time I write something I end up researching more and more. Turns out the more you know the less you know. Any hoo, I do hope to have an article out in the next while. 

 

A brief explainer of Pushing film: How you develop your negatives when you want more contrast and for when you have exposed your negatives with less light.
