Encouraging News from the World of Analog Photography

ILFORD recently announced the opening of a new North American lab to meet the increasing demand for B&W film processing and traditional printing. The lab, based in San Clemente, California, will be part of the ILFORD DIRECT LAB mail-in service allowing customers to get their 35mm or 120 film developed and receive actual silver prints. Of course if you're reading this blog, you should be processing your own film and making prints in your own darkroom, but it is good news nevertheless. 
For more information, check out the ILFORD DIRECT LAB site here.
