    Hi, I've been asked by a good friend to photograph her wedding day!
    A big responsibility so I want to make sure i get the best possible results.
    I'm confident in my ability to capture the shots she will want but I'm a little concerned about the actual film processing/printing.
    The results I have had over recent months form the usual high street developers have been very inconsistent and often quite poor.

    Can anyone recommend a professional quality developer either in the Nottingham area or with a mail order service.

    Thanks
    Rich.

    This is a question ive been meaning to ask recently.

    What is the difference between high street processing/printing and going to a professional?

    Is there a difference in chemicals, paper? Im assuming that professionals dont hand process and print. At least for usual jobs.

    Please explain.

    Effort and experience are normally what you are paying for. The equipment is normally identical, it's the effort they'll take in making corrections (or not!) and doing it slowly and carefully rather than banging the cartridge in the machine and pressing +2 contrast, GO... and then ignoring the results and blaming the camera/photographer if it doesn't look great!
