I kept my images outside for 1 hour, 45 minutes. I thought that when the paper approached the slate grey-blue sort of colour, it would be done. My teacher had also mentioned something about placing a coin over the emulsion to see how your highlights were coming out. I wasn't sure really what I was looking for in this, but thought it was okay.
Unfortunately, when I got everything back upstairs, and rinsed off, you could barely see any image at all. I left them hanging to dry for about 3 hours. When I returned home and checked on them, the images are barely discernible. On one in particular, you can barely see anything. :(
So, I'll be buying more chemicals this weekend, and will hopefully have better luck. But I am curious as to what exactly tells you its time to take the image inside. What are you looking for in a highlight, exactly?
