Photographic Hand Developer Resume

A photographic hand developer is a professional specialized in manually developing films and exposing sensitized paper using a series of water and special chemicals baths that produce a negative or a positive print. This requires technical training, but there are no specific educational demands, since the procedure can be learned individually by professional photographers.


Photographic hand developers have to immerse the exposed film into developer solution and obtain the photographic image, and then the negative print is treated with stop bath and hypo solution in order to fix the image. The next step is drying the print, and after this the coloration procedures and the removal of chemicals follow.

The resume of a photographic hand developer needs to underline this special knowledge in manual developing. Professional photographers or passionate photographers have more chances to be hired, since they have a trained eye for obtaining the desired effects in hand developing. Special skills required are acute visual color discrimination, night vision and manual dexterity, since the job implies rapid hand movements. Some chemistry knowledge may be very useful since the process involves calculating specific amounts of chemical solutions. Attention is another required ability, because photographic hand developing implies a small margin of error. Any mistake can effectively ruin the exposed film.
