I read this on flickr:
“Expose for shadows, because that is the light spots on your negative. You must have enough exposure to get your shadow detail above film base+fog.
Once you have that, you develop for highlights. Essentially if you develop too long, your highlights will get clipped because they will reach maximum black.
In a negative the shadows are low densities of silver and the highlights are high densities of silver.
Less development reduces contrast and fog.
Fomapan has enough latitude to resolve 12+ stops.”

Fomapan 200 in Caffenol
Got to try something like that.
BTW: Got the ordered film today, loaded Fomapan 400 into 5 carts, then swapped it out of the loader to have place for Kentmere 400 instead… a few carts made of that too.
So Tmax 400, Fomapan 400 and Kentmere 400 available right now.
More to think about:
