I call this set REFLECTION. I shot a B&W roll (a REAL black & white roll) during a film portrait session and finished it off while I was sitting outside my favorite coffee shop, Stauf’s. For those of you who don’t know, you can’t just walk into any old shop or Walgreens to develop a real roll of B&W film. If you’ve developed “black & white” film before at a Walgreens then it probably wasn’t real (it was C-41, which their machines can process). I decided to send my roll off to Richard Photo Lab for the first time ever! In my dreams I would just develop film myself but our teeny tiny one bedroom apartment wouldn’t really accommodate my setup. I filled out the form, mailed it along with my roll of film and about a week and a half later, I got an email with the FTP information and downloaded my photos! Pretty awesome. Cost? $37. Obviously it’s more pricey than when I use C-41 but I’m excited to get a color roll or try out a medium format camera and ship off to Richard Photo Lab for processing. You can see the photos from my film session below:

Ahh, I love all of these! There’s something so beautiful about B&W.
Thanks for sharing the resource about B&W developing. it was always a dream of mine to have my own dark room but I think i’ll settle for a great place to send off the film. Your photos look lovely too!
*drool* for film in general and b&w specifically. :)
I’m dying to get into processing my own stuff; I think that would just be the ultimate.
seriously beautiful photos!
They turned out great! RPL is definitely worth the $$.
