My name's John Finch. I am the owner of Pictorial Planet and the author of The Art of Black and White Developing.

I've been a darkroom enthusiast since I was eight and from the age of ten was making developers, stops, fixers and toners. I've been a professional photographer, film maker, and trainer.

Throughout all this I've always enjoyed sharing work with other photographers and published my book (the first edition of
The Art of Black and White Developing) back in 2005. So far it has been updated three times and now 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.
