Large format photographer from Indiana, Craig Sheaks,  shoot exclusively film. In this video Craig shows various methods he uses to develop/process 4x5 B&W film.


Personally I  added two more to the list. But the last, "The Taco Method"  I think is really interesting. You only need a classical Universal Tank with Two Reels (35/120mm) to develop 4x5. Really nice DIY system.
