    My switch to film (which was always planned) was quite abrupt - I bought a couple of holgas ;)
    So I just came back from a long trip where I use quite a few films, including a couple of infrared.

    I am wondering where could I develop these ! Also my problem is that at least one of them need to be pushed to 800 so, will they do this for me ?

    I am in DC. I was hoping to find a Film Photo Tutor to guide me through my first developing experience either in a lab or at home (after I buy what is needed).

    looking forward for you suggestions.

    Thank you

    You really should go to a pro lab both for the pushing and the infared. Most processors have infared sensors on their machines and they must be turned off before running your film or it will be fogged. Make sure you go to someone that knows what they are doing. It would be better if you could do them yourself.

    I agree I think I am going to opt for doing them at home.

    A basic question: can I/should I, store them in the fridge or freezer, since it would take at least a month before I get the time to get myself a developing kit at home ?

    Thanks
