Hi Chris. Glad you're happy with the first shots. I think you'll find that when you start doing your own processing that you will reap more benefits than just a savings in time and cost. True, you will save money by doing your own developing and printing and you can get things done as fast as you want, but the main benefit is the quality of your prints when you do them yourself. You get to choose the film developer for your style and you pick the type of paper for your prints. Any interpretation you have in mind is yours to create. It's a gas. Go for it!
