The Difference A Developer Makes

I have developed my 4th roll of film, but I have made a slight change in one aspect of the process, I have switched to Kodak’s D-76 developer from the generic Adorama developer. This developer takes longer to work (meaning also its less harsh and allows for more flexibility). From analyzing the negatives this time I feel like things are more evenly developed, there are no strange spots on the film and in general the contrast of the images is more pleasing. This certainly inspires me to continue shooting on film, at least in part. That being said, I reloaded my camera with Kodak Plus-X 125 film this time, not Neopan 400, so I am shaking things up a bit there as well.
