Developing: Your Local Lab

Image

Contax 645, Fuji 400H, 80mm lens, f/2. Oahu, HI.

If you’re not yet ready for RPL, take a drive to your local camera lab and see what they’re capable of doing. Start a conversation about scan sizes and film types – they’ll be happy to chat with you.

Does the lab develop color and C-41 film? How about medium format? What about true black and white? What sizes of scans do they offer, and for how much? Do they push and pull film? At what charge? What’s their turnaround time? How much are proof prints? Be prepared to ask questions and record the answers, then give the lab a try if you like their work as well as their answers.

AGAIN, GOOD FILM SCANNING COMES FROM HAVING A DIALOGUE WITH YOUR LAB. LET THEM KNOW WHAT’S WORKING AND WHAT ISN’T.
