ANALOG FILM AND SILVER GELATIN PRINT
We are pleased to assist to a renaissance regarding the use of film and analogic cameras. Our lab started its activities 40 years ago and for this reason we have deep feelings when it comes to this matter.
It's a no bariner that the authors and enthusiats who are shooting film demand printing solutions in line with the analogic aestethics.
For this reason our lab offers professional film developement and high end scanning services thanks to a pristine drum scanner that's able to render in the most beautiful way the unique features of film photogrpahy.
The union between an impeccable drum scan and a digital black and white silver gelatin print created with our Lambda Drust Digital Enlarger is the best way to create unique artworks.
When we start from analog material we always strongly advise to rely on our drum scanner since when it come to dynamic range and grain it has no match.
This is how we turn 35mm negatives into amazing 100x150 silver gelatin prints that we carefully hand develop in our darkroom.
Precisely for this reason, the combination of DRUM SCANNING and PRINTING WITH DIGITAL ENLARGER IS THE ONLY ONE ABLE TO RESPECT THE UNIQUE FEATURES OF THE FILM.
In fact, more and more photographers, both veterans and new generations, have started ore even restarted shooting in analogue after trying our hybrid procedure.
We know really well the commitment required to shoot film and that's why we provide an exclusive solution that will please even the most demanding photographer.
