    Anyone suggest any labs for color film in this area? I suppose I could send further but wouldn't mind keeping shipping distance down. I have been developing my own BW but don't want to do color. Would like quality develop/machine print/scan all in one shot, both medium format and 35mm.
    And then superior quality enlargements :smile:
    Thanks in advance!

    Chrome. Q St. just (as in, about 50 ft.) west of Wisconsin.

    BTW, there are some lovely photographs on your website. I think it would be far more effective, however, if you would lose the music. It ruined the experience for me.

    Try UPhoto (formerly United Photo) in Beltsville. They are on Rt 1 about 2 miles north of the Beltway. Their web site is www.uphoto.com. They do very good work.

    Thank you c6h6o3 and Bob, I will check them out tomorrow and send some stuff in. Also see that Severn Graphics is real close so will try them too. As for the music...Iknow, I know it is a love hate sort of thing and my clients tell me how they love having it on there, they are paying my bills so keeping it for now! You can quite easily turn it off but might not be as obvious as I thought. Truly appreciate your opinion and thanks about the photos!
    Best,
    H

    Is Chrome still around? I always like Positive image over in the Tyson's area. If you're just looking for good developing of negs and machine prints Penn Springfield has some really care guys in the lab, don't know about the others...

    Yes Chrome is still around. I don't do that much color work but when I do I go there and have been since the early 90's. They are expensive but do awesome work.
