• Develop & Print Your Film

    St. Louis Photo Authority®

    Bring in your exposed roll of 35mm or 120 black and white film and we will help you develop it and make a contact print. Learn how film is loaded onto the reel, how the daylight tanks work (so you don’t have to process in the dark), which chemicals you need, etc. We will develop, fix, wash and dry your film before sleeving it and making an 8x10 contact sheet that shows each of your images. If you like hands-on projects, this is a very satisfying way to engage your photographic urges!

    Why shoot film? There are many reasons film cameras fascinate: they are artifacts from a bygone era, they require the user to slow down and think about each image, they have a cool “retro” look to them, they give you tangable, permanent records of your photographic trials and tribulations, etc., but the best reason to shoot film is because you want to! In Intro to 35mm & 120 Roll Film you will learn how your camera works, how to load the film into the camera, what kinds of film are available, where to develop your film, how you can share your images, where to make prints, and the best way to store your negatives and prints. We'll also take a look at some classic film cameras and shoot a few photos.
