Re: Farmer's Reducer Information.
My personal favorite is the R-1. It is super proportional and does a
great job of reducing contrast.
There are 3 basic reducer types: a subtractive or cutting reducer; a
proportional type and a super-proportional type. Lots of reducers out
there, but the best approach is to accurately expose your negatives from
the start and do not rely upon the availability of these chemicals to
solve problems should you get careless.
Incidentally, all 3 formulas of Kodak's Farmer's Reducer use the same two
chemicals; Potassium Ferricyanide and Sodium Thiosulphate. the difference
is in the dilution and mixing.
