Black and White Film Processing and Printing

Doing your own film processing and printing gives you much more control over your results than passing them over to the local laboratory. You probably won't save money, but mastering the skills is enjoyable and will allow you to produce prints just the way you want them to look. This grows more important the further you progress in your photography - aiming for your own style of pictures or perhaps tackling specialized subjects beyond the range of the average commercial laboratory.

By far the best way to start is to process black and white film and make black and white prints (by contact and by enlargement). This will get you familiar with handling chemicals and setting up and working in a darkroom. Later, you can progress to the extra challenge of judging color test prints and working in the near darkness of a color printing darkroom.
