    Ah, yes, the look and feel of film.
    I remember it fondly.
    The days that Kodak and Amaloco still existed. The days you could actually do contrast magic by overexposing/underdeveloping.

    It is, however, not a very tough choice between the look of a properly developed Tri-X and the fact that now I don’t have to breathe the fumes of Rodinal and fixing agent anymore ;-)

    And the need to completely black out the room. My Dad and I did photoprocessing in the bathroom, at night! We also used the kitchen at night, and hang a blanket over the window. and every now and then somehow there’d be a ray of light, don’t remember how but it usually my fault, and Dad would yell at me. I also never mastered the art of really putting the film into that processing container correctly and some edges would touch and so many shots would have these white smears.

    Years ago I worked in a wholesale photofinishing lab, we could do 30000 rolls a night without breaking a sweat. Nowdays, I doubt that there are 30000 rolls shot in a year.

    I even did Ilfochrome and colour prints, what a pain! Total darkness, colour calibration, exact developer temperature )with a digital thermometer)many trial and error prints… Now my inkjet photo printer prints at the touch of a button!
