2. Nelson’s Photo (listed above)


*  Some students have had problems with underdeveloped negatives from Costco

*  Important –different film development methods, for color class, specify that you want negatives for traditional photo process.

***Be careful about Photo stores that say they can make prints in 30 minutes or less.  They are probably using a procedure that underdevelops the negatives and automatically corrects them and prints them digitally.  This leaves you with bad negatives for printing in the darkroom.

***Do not buy Prisim brand CD’s from the bookstore.  They don’t work well.  Other name brand CD’s should be fine.  I recommend Verbatim CDRW’s.  There is a difference in the quality of CD’s.
