Where To Buy Black And White Film Near Me 2021



The Darkroom will print your images on genuine ILFORD Black and White Silver Gelatin Photographic Paper. Many labs print your black and white images on color photo paper, giving your photo a color cast, but our True black and white prints produce a crisp, true black and white representation of your black and white file. Benefits include:

B&W Photo Lab provides traditional black and white film processing and printing from any size negative, including glass plates. Our lab is located in the State Theatre Building in the heart of the arts district in Portland, Maine.


Thanks for the comments, Mandeep. Re: developing times, the answer is that is depends greatly on the film-developer combo you're using. Some combinations will have developing times as short as 5 minutes, some will be longer than 10 or 15 minutes. Check the developer bottle and film box for an idea of where to start. And you won't want to "overdevelop" just for the sake of preventing underdevelopment, because then your film will be overdeveloped. Think of it like baking- you wouldn't over-bake food to the point of it being burnt or dry just in spite of it not being under-baked.


With adding time with reusable/replenished chemistry, you likely won't be needing to up the developing time with each roll. Adding time is typically done as the chemistry ages, but, again, it's one of those situations where "it depends." If you're reusing solution to develop 24 rolls, one after another and one roll at a time, your need to up the developing time will be a bit different than if you developed one roll of film per month for two years. Regardless, I don't think you'll encounter a situation where you'll need to go as far as increasing the time by 24x. It's also worth mentioning that this is one of those reasons why one-shot/single-use developers are often preferred in general use situations, for the consistency in developing times.


Hi, Bjorn! As I gather from your name, you are from Scandinavia, am I correct? I'm in Norway for some time but due to language barriers can't find a place to develop my films for a decent price (usually around 15 dollars for a roll of 36). Do you have some recommendations if you indeed are from Norway as to where I could develop or gather gear for developing?


Hej Valters- Just Scandinavian heritage, but haven't spent time living there. Unfortunately I don't have any lab recommendations, but a good place to start might be the closest university to you that has an art program. It's likely any students there will be sending out film to be developed or they will be purchasing chemistry for the program; check with them to see where they go.


Ok I'm not going to be lie. I was bit intimidated on what chemicals to use stop bath or what was it for so this article has helped me a lot with a clear path to developing my black and white film thank you very much


I have started out Photography as a class in which was Photography 1 at Wichita High School East in where Edward L. Antrim already taught in when I was a High School Senior there. I have gotten some help from one of my classmates to load my negative films up into the developing tank before putting the chemicals in order (D-76 Developer and Water together, and then after that Fixer) for My First Rol of Film, Depth of Field, and for to Rent Camera out, after I finish using all of my Film up before rewinding all the way back to the top. In which also includes Black and White Photography Studios 1 & 2 at Wichita State University in where Dale Strattman has taught, as well as Linda K. Robinson of Photo Media Topics (Large Format) and Advanced Photography Studio in where i did some developing for myself in which was and still elsewhere, unfortunately not even at home!!!


I've written a couple of articles relating to scanning that might help you out: here's a buying guide to film scanners, which includes a handful of flatbed scanners as well, and covers the range of models and their features we have at B&H. And for more of a tutorial, we have a piece on using a DSLR (or almost any camera could work) to digitize your film without a scanner. This method seemed to work particularly well for black and white film, so if you have the camera and macro lens, I think it's definitely worth a shot.


Both C-41 and E-6 chemistry is still available, but do note that processing color film isn't a very exciting or creative process like black and white- they are very straightforward, regimented processes that require a lot of attention to detail.


Thanks for the info. Primarily with C-41 development, I was more interested from a convenience point of view; the drugstores that did C-41 developing have switched from wet-lab processing to dry-lab processing where the negatives are destroyed in the process. I don't want that; I want my photos on a tangible object like film. With B&W and E-6, I have to send those films out of state for developing. Now, I have to do the same with C-41.


i have two gorgeous omega enlargers that i no longer need. would you be interested in them? you could have them for free if you are anywhere near me. i also have some of that darkroom stuff bjorn mentioned too. i am in naples florida. shoot me an email if you're interested. [email protected]


We use the real Black & White photographic chemical process in a Noritsu 470 Black & White Film Processor. Your prints will be printed on a Fuji Frontier Silver Edition Digital Printer on Ilford Galerie Digital Silver Black & White RC paper. These are TRUE BLACK & WHITE prints, not inkjet and not printed "near black and white" on color photo paper. This is one of the finest quality Black & White printing methods available today. We are now offering these outstanding archival prints in sizes from 3x5 to 10x15 inches, on glossy or pearl Ilford B&W paper, and with your choice of borderless or white borders. You can also order process only, proof sheets, or standard or hi-res scans.


Prints from film at time of processing: These prices are for true black and white prints from negatives when you order prints from the entire roll of film. All prints are available in glossy or pearl finish, and borderless or with white borders. Your film is always returned to you with any order.


Accurate Photoshop processes 35mm and 120 film in C-41 color, black and white, as well as E-6 slide film.They offer same-day service on color film and next day service on black and white. Slide film takes a bit longer.


The best black and white film allows you to create stunning images with your analog camera. But not all black and white film stocks are the same. They have different ISOs. And they use different emulsions that react to light in unique ways. That means some film stocks are better suited to certain types of photography.


Fomapan 200 is a funny old film. Many have asked if the world really needs a 200 ISO black and white film. But I think it does. It is a fantastic film stock for tentative photographers looking for more detail.


Kodak Tri-X Pan 400 is a popular black and white stock with film photographers. The fine grain structure gives you a smooth texture. And you get very few blemishes or imperfections for a 400 ISO film.


The timeless quality of black and white photos excites our imagination. And they have a heightened sense of mystery and romance. Before the arrival of color film, everyone had to use black and white film.


So ISO plays a large part in determining the best black and white film. If you want intense quality and a smooth finish, you need a film with 100 ISO or lower. Night photographers need something like a 3200 ISO film.


Finding the right film stock for you has a lot to do with your personal aesthetics as a photographer. You should also consider what subject you plan to be shooting and what photography equipment you have at your disposal. The majority of consumer films are somewhere between the 100-400 range and an excellent option if you are shooting with a fully manual camera and plan to do most of your work outdoors. If you are more of a night owl and plan to be shooting at night a high-speed 1600 or 3200 film might be a better option for you. If you are using a film camera with a flash and shooting somewhere poorly lit a 400 speed film will probably do just fine to help you balance your subject and background.


This high-contrast black-and-white film was designed with street photographers in mind. This panchromatic film stock is excellent at cutting through the haze and fog common in big cities to create images that are incredibly sharp, have very little grain, and are very moody. This film has a very thin emulsion making some of the best black-and-white films for scanning.


Chromogenic black and white is hard to beat for the convenience (I just drop my rolls off at the local drugstore), but my photos have been known to come out greenish. Too bad I bought a 50 roll pack of Ilford XP2 and have to use it all up! :)


There are also black and white slide films but these are pretty rare now. They're traditional films but have radically different development processes. Agfa Scala (and the Dia-Direct predecessor) was the best known one. Most Ilford films can be processed in reversal baths but I think the only current dedicated b/w slide film left on the market is Fomapan R100.


@katherine-lynn: Part of this issue is caused by the film base (In particular, if it's Orange or not), and the fact that with a lot of colour papers, the Black isn't a true Black - It's a very, very dark Green. But you're right, if you go to a professional lab then you're bound to get better results than if you take them to your local drugstore or supermarket. Although that's part of the reason people use the C-41 films - They can't process them at home and don't have a lab nearby that can handle Silver Gelatin.


I am currently setting up a darkroom at home and i was just considering some of the points raised here. There's two great UK based darkroom / film supply places online that have started to sell chemicals in pouches so they have longer life spans. AG Photographic and Firsat Call Photographic, but there are tonnes more, so look around. As a novice when i bought my BW stock I chose BW C-41 as there seemed to be more places where you could get them developed but now have compared to dedicated BW film and the results are soooo sexy! 041b061a72
