About the Photography: Black & White Darkroom

You should come prepared with photo paper, negative sleeves, negative cleaning cloth or brush, and a negative binder. Although the photo lab supplies film developing tanks and reels, we encourage you to buy your own. Other inexpensive items to consider for your personal lab kit includes lens tissue and cleaner, a pair of small scissors, print bags, and an archival print storage box.
