Finally got around to developing my film rolls. I also found an old film roll from 2002-2003? in one of my mom’s old cameras so I had that developed too (left). Those photos on the left kind of got messed up considering they’re really old so the photos/film overlapped. It makes for a cool effect.
I’m extremely freaking happy with my two test rolls that I took with my mom’s old Nikon film camera. The last time I used it & had semi-successful photos was I think a year ago?
I regret having those rolls from a year ago developed at a Walgreens/Rite Aid because they don’t take special care during the developing process & I guess you get what you pay for because they also fucked up one of my B&W rolls.
Although the place I go to get mine developed is a little more expensive than Walgreens/Rite Aid, I really really love the quality of the outcome. You can definitely see the quality of a developed photo between a local photo shop & a Walgreens. If I got my photos developed at rite aid, I probably would’ve paid $30 for 3 rolls+disc, but instead I paid $41 for 3 rolls today at my local photo shop WITHOUT the disc. So it’s a little more expensive, but so much more worth it. I didn’t get either of these rolls on a disc like the last time, but that’s okay because these were test rolls anyway. I’ll probably scan some of the photos some time this week & make a separate post for them on this blog.
I think I’m finally getting the hang of using my mom’s old Nikon film camera which is making me really happy because I was having so much trouble with it last time. Only a few photos I took were underexposed, but that’s okay because I don’t mind the trial & error process.
