No you can't. You just GAVE AWAY your labor. And you're not factoring in your other costs like the time to go buy your chemistry and bring it back, mixing the chemistry, handling the spent chemistry, the cost of the sleeves for the film, the cost of the paper, and so on. If you are NOT doing volume processing and proofing like a pro lab, a realistic cost for yourself to develop and proof is at least 50% more if not double what the lab charges.
