    I tried to find a definitive video on the internet that explained how film works. I couldn't find that video.... so I decided to make it. I called Indie Film Lab and they were all about it. I love film photography and would love for you to try it. They're at www.indiefilmlab.com/

    This brought me back to my High School days when I took a class on photography and we developed black and white film. I can remember popping the cap of my first roll in the pitch black room and then winding it up onto one of those reals to be developed. There truly is something magic that can never be captured in the digital world.

    @CleverWoodenRhino the red room comes later in the process when you are trying to develop the photo on light-sensitive paper using a tool similar to overhead projector. The dim red light is not enough to substantially develop the light-sensitive photo paper and the negatives of the film are already developed, washed, fixed and dry, they can be safely handled in full light at this point, so no damage there.

    I am a camera collector, and this video has given one more reason to appreciate the process of taking images on film. I agree that the sense of anticipation after you have shot an image makes you feel like you have created something new. Kudos to SmarterEveryDay for bringing out this very educative and inspiring video.

    I still wear a mechanical watch, all springs, gears, and an escapement mechanism. Everything can be seen, everything understood. Its construction made by an artisan, a human, whose workmanship is displayed on my wrist and someday on my son's wrist. The lack of silicon, battery, and quartz takes me to a time when life seemed more real, more warm, more genuine, as it was in 1970s America.

    Back, when I still did film, I wondered what C-41 processing looked like; now I know. Thanks Briefly, my thoughts as to what's so special about silver based film photography: 1) the process involves hands-on craftsmanship, and produces a tangible piece of work; 3) the recent increased interest, is mostly due to a degree of nostalgia (e.g. baby-boomers reflecting on their younger years when photography was only film); 4) silver based photography was not the first photographic technology, and will eventually takes it's place alongside earlier processes.

    Why in the world would anyone digitize a film image? I do all my stuff either on slide film or I develop my black and white negative film as slides. No digital for me. You of course are free to do as you wish. I just think you're cheating yourself. I hope this lab returns your film to you. A lot of companies don't so they can mine your film for silver. I think the film is the creation and belongs to the shooter.

    Meh, as a photographer you can care less about the "feel" of film. It's a tool, not for giving you warm fuzzies. That is what your end result should do. Film to me is relegated to creative photography or simply shooting with old lenses. Film is completely obsolete and only comeback it has is among the hipsters who are more concerned about being cool than taking a good pic. Sorry if I sound calloused, but I started out on film. I still have a film body, but it's a tool. Not a cup of cappuccino.

    They just do not have microcontrast in them. Disable that default feature on your Canon digital camera and you will have much better photos. However, most people like microcontrast at first. Like most people buy sparkly shining flaring monitors and then whey try to use it on sunny day and understand that have they done and go into the deep depression and their eyes are already burned out. But nobody cares, product already sold. Same thing ruins digital photography, I'm looking at you, Canon! Remember, people, ANY processing lead to information loss. ANY filter make your photo worse. No exceptions, that's the law of physics. This rule is more strong than the conservation of energy. Nobody cares, though (

    Shooting on film is still a thing in the movie industry. On a very small scale, of course, but from time to time some directors will choose to shoot on film. Film has an observable unique look because (in digital terms) it's pixel quality is different from digital image. Back in film school, we still have to learn how to shoot on film & operate real film editing machines. In this day and age of digital film making, many film makers like to "run & gun" during their production. Well, if you're shooting on film, its cost always gives you second thoughts of your decisions & you'll plan meticulously beforehand.

    Let me tell you how much I HATE digital anything... I've lost 4 smart phones in past 8 years, each had pictures of my grandkids from the day they were born and nearly daily thereafter. The oldest is 14. All of his childhood photos are gone as are his cousins and the rest of them. The youngest is 6. I refuse to take photos with my new, first and only IPhone I've ever owned. The cloud and Google captured about 1/20th of my old photos but none of the oldest child pre 6years old. Devastated!!! I have every single film photo taken prior to that over 40 years. Too bad I wasn't as prolific a picture taker for those first 40 years. Hate digital. And don't start on me about not putting the digital on a PC...I haven't owed one since 1999.

    Thank you so much for this video, photography is just not the same since it was digitized. I grew up doing slide photography when scuba diving, I always looked forward to the friday before the end of the trip. The dive shop would showcase all of the best photos from the week in a slideshow put to music. It was a very unique experience and it was sometimes the first time you would see your photos and it truly was magical. Being able to see the photos as you take them is convenient to discover issues right away; however, I feel it also takes away from the overall experience of photography. I am building a dark room again to get back into black and white photography, but I may explore utilizing indiefilmlab to do some color again as well. Thanks again for the video!

    Wow first a video on carbs with a see through now another thing I am very familiar with - film. Not only did I grow up with film cameras having a Kodak Brownie as a kid then going into hobby photography as a teen with 35mm SLRs and having my own darkroom but also working for a professional photography company in Chicago in 1975/76 as a darkroom technician and studio photographer before I enlisted in the Air Force. I was supposed to be going into a photographic field after basic training but was switched and put into air-to-air and air-to-ground missiles before we finished basic but I still continued my photo hobby and was able to use the base hobby center's darkroom at my first base in Las Vegas (Nellis AFB). Later I went to other bases that didn't have photo hobby centers so I fell into using the consumer developing places both local and mail-in. When I worked for the place in Chicago we both manually developed and had Kodak machines that we fed the film into at the beginning in the dark and the processing of the slide or negative films were done by the machine and the dried film came out the opposite end in the light where we could cut the roll into strips of so many frames. Most of the jobs were professional and advertising shoots so we would contact print the developed negatives and the customer cirled which ones they wanted and what size and we printed them with an enlarger one at a time. I loved working with film and I still have film cameras but just recently found that films are once again being produced and that developing processes are coming back so I may revive that old hobby of film photography and teach my grandkids a little about an alternative way to take photos not just with a phone or digital camera.

    Brought back a lot of memories from the 80s when I worked at the nations’s (maybe the world’s oldest photo lab, E. B. Luce Corporation in Worcester. We had a dip and dunk for E6 and roller transport for C41 film development. Our dip and dunk machine also used nitrogen bubbles for agitation, but because we developed so much film, gas canisters ran out too quickly, so we had a big tank of liquid nitrogen. My job was mostly making large photo murals (up to 52” (the largest material width) x 16’ (the width of my darkroom’ in my darkroom). I used a Durst 2,000 watt enlarger that could handle negatives and chromes up to 8”x10”.

    Ah, the 90s. When photos were rare semi-precious things. When every time you get photos developed, it's always an event. And you always find that one photo where your finger was on the lens or it got overexposed. And you can't even remember what it was supposed to look like.

    There’s something I don’t quite understand about the video’s assertion: Indie doesn’t actually print photos, but instead they scan the film and convert it into digital photos, which may also involve digital alteration/touching up. So, if even film photos become digital, what’s the basis for the argument that film photos produce better quality images than totally digital photos? Is it because the film is able to pickup more photons than a digital camera? If so, isn’t the quality of the film image reduced or limited as it becomes processed (first through the scanner’s limits on what it can pickup, then through the conversion of that image to manageable digital files, then through the screen quality of the device you view the digital image on)? Is the scanner producing better images than a high quality digital camera? And is the scanner touchup software better than the software used for high quality digital photos? I’m not arguing against anything, but I legitimately didn’t see the video present how digitized film images are objectively superior in quality to purely digital images, whereas I did see plenty of subjective claims for superiority of film based on the experience one has while using or processing it.

    Man, this has brought back memories. My first job was in a store that did this kind of thing. Our developing machine was much more compac and fed the roll through continuously. Still had to keep the chemestry balanced and the like. Used a Fuji-film scanner that was built in to our printer to print. Still did all the colour correction stuff before printing. We also burnt the photos straight to disk as well as printed them.

    If the rolls are dipped like that, the middle parts will spend less time in the solutions than the ends. Judging by the speed (or lack of it) of the movements, the difference will be several seconds. So it cannot be very time sensitive then?

    I was sort of interested in finding out how it is that the different wavelengths of light affected the crystals in such a consistent manner, as how yellow is capture or how we can get greens and blues in the same scene without losing acciracy or sharpness. Also how the crystal dispersion/ratio affected that. Dont get me wrong I loved the video.

    Great stuff Destin - Zooming in on the film with the microscope and seeing the tiny grains was really cool.

    That looks like an amazing place to work at. Watching this reminds me that whenever I was near a place that processed photos, mostly the photo booths that used to be somewhere by a supermarket in the country I grew up in, I remember a distinct smell that I figure is the developing chemicals, or maybe it was the film... I never actually figured it out. I wonder if Indie Film Lab smells like that.
