Remember those long negatives that sit in your living room alongside the printed photos in your photo albums? Don’t you just miss flipping through the albums and remember your childhood memories flashback right in front of you? Remember clicking the shutter button of your camera and half-wondering if you got the shot right? Or maybe your finger half-covered the whole frame? Admit it, you have a bunch of pictures like that! Oh, and remember the anxious feeling of waiting for the films to be developed because unlike in today’s camera technology, you would have to wait for hours to see the images that have been taken. Well, you don’t have to miss the nostalgic feeling. Analog photography is making a comeback. And the millennials and the Gen Z are taking interest--a lot--in film photography.

Complete the fun and experience of analog photography by having your films developed at home! The darkroom need not be a studio-like setup. Just follow these easy steps and tips. And voila, you have your own darkroom in your garage.
