My name's John Finch. I've been a photographer for 50 years. I am the author of The Art of Black and White Developing.

I've been a darkroom enthusiast since I was eight and from ten was making developers, stops, fixers and toners.

I've always enjoyed sharing with other photographers and published my first book (the first edition of
The Art of Black and White Developing) back in 2005. My book has been updated three times now and covers all things developing in the darkroom (as well as lots of photography tips). Why not follow me on Twitter, like my page on facebook and share this resource with your friends.

An outstanding integration of wisdom, wit and practical information. A must read…
