Oh. My. Goodness.


I just downloaded my photos from Richard Photo Lab…

(Richard KILLED IT!!!)

I am so excited I can hardly speak.

I cannot wait to see the rest of these…

(EDIT: I may be forced to concede there is a *minor* difference in quality between their process, and mine…)

      Seriously? (Color and B&W??)

      I am SO excited for you!!

      You have GOT to send some results my way…I will be more than happy to post them for you.

    Mark, these are very nice.

    As nice as they are, though, I think you’re short-changing your own developing and scanning skills. The images you’ve home processed are just as polished, at least to my eye.

    I’ve been seeing a lot of development/scans from Richards Photo Lab lately and the quality does seem to be top notch. I would agree though that your development and scanning is right up there! On another note, that 35 Lux FLE is #1 on my bucket list of lenses…really beautiful in your hands!

      (Sorry Jordan–missed your message!)

      Thanks very much for your comments–the FLE is indeed a beautiful lens–If I was a “35mm shooter” at heart it could certainly be a one-lens solution!

      Hope you’re well,

    They do look good, that’s for sure. I notice that they aim towards a ‘light/airy’ sort of look. It’s nice. Now, I love grain, but I get the feeling that even RPL doesn’t have a scanning process as good as movie film scanning labs. Photo scanning is way behind.
