    Where are you located? What kind of film? What format? How many rolls? Any special instructions, techniques, or materials needed?

    Nothing special realy, I just need to get some 35mm Black and White film developed ill probably have about 2-3 rolls to give you a month if you are interested, Im in Chelmsford, Essex. Size wise anythink goes realy im not fussy although im wouldent want 5x3.5's or anythink silly. And in most cases 36+/- Exposures

    Are you looking at just developing the film or do you want all the prints too?

    Why aren't you using a photo lab? Unless you find someone who doesn't value their time much, simple developing and printing is going to be much cheaper at a lab.

    You'll find that the printing side is very subjective too.

    Different people prefer different tones and contrast levels for example.

    Making 36 prints from negatives will be a labourious task, taking possibly over a whole day depending on how good the film exposures are and how good you want your prints!

    The gear needed to develop B&W film is dirt cheap and the process is easy. Why don't you do it yourself and cut out the middle man?

    You don't even need a darkroom to develop your own film.

    You would need one to make your own gelatin silver prints.
