We finished rinsing the fixture out of the film in our developing tank here, the next
step is to use what’s called the hypo-clearing agent. In this case the particular one that
we’re using is Kodiak photo flow, in order to properly use this you want to have a medicine
dropper you want to use only about 2 drops, you could just drop them in your tank, then
pour in plain distilled water. In order to properly use this you want to agitate softly
for about 1 minute…the purpose of the hypo-clearing agent is to put a surface on the film that
resist water, this will cause the water to beat up and run off, it helps prevent water
spots and dust and things like that from getting on your film which in the end will help you
produce better images when you go to enlarge them. Once that’s done you can simply pour
it out…very similar to soap and at this stage you can go ahead and open your tank
and take out your film see what you’ve got and there you go, there’s your images.
