I recently had a woman contact me about doing some nude photos for her website. I'm not sure what will be going on in the photos. She insited on film rather than digital for some reason. I have no idea where to get this kind of stuff processed. I dunno if my lab will do it. Anybody know?

Other than being 215 miles from Atlanta...

You can use E-Six. They do all of my (not like it is a lot) nude processing...

Any Professional lab, should not have a problem... Even a small lab, as long as they know you... Just ask...

I always try to get buddy buddy with my priter... you get more consistant service that way...

Good luck...

When you say "Photo-Lab" you mean someting other than a mall lab, like "Fox Photo", right?

Yes...

But, No...

A real pro lab, is not going to be in the mall (my opinion)...

BUT, I had a working relationship with a woman that worked at what I would consider non-pro lab. I knew her and she knew my work. She even shot as my assistant... I could trust her to get the job done... So I used her and the non-pro lab...

Now I am in Georgia and dont have that relationship... so the pro-lab gets my business...


They do a great job and always will... at least I hope so...

Good Luck...

That sounds like a bad idea.

I mean, I've never done film processing, but it seems like some of those chemicals would really sting if they got on your naughty bits.

Well, I have a couple of recomendations. First, as someone who has worked for Wal-Mart and K-Mart's photo processing, stay away from wal mart due to it's policy on nudity (and quality). Kmart might do it (questionable.) My best recommendation is to call several local reputable labs in your area, check the yellow pages if necessary. I would stay away from one hour photos, not due to quality, but because you might see some of your photos floating around. If there are not any labs you feel comfortable with, try one of these two options, either use slide film, and or use the Kodak send out service. Kodak's send out service has an excellent reputation (at least here) for consistancy and doing nude photos. Good luck.

Let me clarify. I am capable of determining the difference between a pro lab and walmart for those qho needed to know. Secondly,The chemicals don't really burn if you get them on your naughty bits. I appreciate the helpful advice and I'm going to talk to my lab people about it. I know most of them pretty well, but it's on a professional level so I wasn't sure if i could approach them with this. (any nude work I've done has been digital and not film) I also appreciate the wise cracks. So thanks to everybody.

If you do find out why she wants film rather than digital for use on her website, I think all would be interested in knowing. That seems like an odd request since it will require extra work to get them on the website. By the way, did she perhaps, also want the original film at the end of the project?
Cheers,

I explained that to her. I told her it would cost more for film because of the extra effort it would take to get them on the site. She said that was ok. I also explained to her that should get more images for her site for the same money if we do it digital. She still wanted film. I'll find out eventually and let you all know. I'm sure she has some pre-concieved notion that film will ultimately be better.
