    No, not terribly dangerous. Obviously, you don't want them anywhere near food and good hygienic practice is a good idea. C-41 for color negatives and E-6 for color transparencies are a bit more demanding of attention than B&W because time and temperature controls are more critical, but otherwise it's dead easy.

    FWIW, I have done E-4, E-6, and Anscochrome but have always left C41 to a pro lab for both developing and printing.

    Hmm. Wow, I got a lot more info than I expected! I live in Virginia, in the Fredericksburg area, if anyone knows any places that have the chemicals( I don't feel comfortable buying things online).

    Freestyle is THE reputable online source for all photographic supplies. They have a very knowlegable staff, and the customer service department is the best anywhere. You can get whatever supplies needed and the help to get the right equiptment without sales hype.
    If you are trying to do DR work in a lighted room, you will need a changing bag or changing tent to load film into the daylight processing tank. After that everything can be done in open light(so long as the lids are on properly).
