[font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=black] The 1st time I went to get one of my 35mm films developed at the local shop, I made enquiries about B&W film and developing costs. It turns out that now colour is the more prevelant format used, B&W developing is more expensive.(Plus as I live in a small town,the roll would have to be sent away for developement) [/color][/size][/font]
[font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=black] I have got round this so far by shooting on C41 film, but it lacks the definition and tone that I want, and depending on where you get the shots developed, can have a coloured hue to the results.:o [/color][/size][/font]
[font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=black]I'll be sending off my B&W films in the future to an online service to get them developed, but this is an imperfect solution.[/color][/size][/font]
[font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=black]As I am on a very limited budget, I think it would be more cost effective in the long run to set up a basic B&W darkroom at home, but am clueless about where to start![/color][/size][/font]
[font=Times New Roman][size=3]Please can anyone suggest an online site that explains everything an idiot (er....that would be me!) ~would need to know?? The equipment required....and the process itself![/size][/font]
[font=Times New Roman][size=3]Basically everything! [/size][/font]
