Banding on my Images

5 months 4 weeks ago #667840 by cruzmoose
Hi Everyone,

I develop my own negatives.  Lately I realized some of my images have banding.  I develop with Cinestill CS-41 color kit and I scan with Epson V850 Pro.  Images below for sample of issue (it's mostly noticeable in the sky)

I have agitated using both the turning and inversion methods, but both give me the same results.  I don't know what could be causing this.  Thanks in advance for you help.

It's almost certainly an agitation issue - although I am surprised to hear you get it with -both- rotating & inversion agitation methods. From days (years & years) gone by, after filling the tank with the developer I would a) lift the tank and tap once on the workbench gently to dislodge any bubbles, b) invert once, taking up to 5 seconds per inversion, then c) leave the tank alone for the remaining 20-25 seconds

Subsequent chemicals could receive a slightly more vigorous agitation, with washing being almost continuous agitation

Hope this helps
