Photographic Film Processing

At Metro Imaging we have consistently processed photographic film for more than thirty years using the very best dip and dunk photo processing for transparency (E6), negative (C41) and black and white film, along with other services, such as contacting, mini-lab prints and scanning.

Push processing is over-developing film at the processing stage in order to compensate for underexposed film. Some photographers use this technique deliberately to squeeze a bit more speed out of a slower film in low light.

Side effects are the increase in contrast and graininess of the film and loss of detail in shadow. Pull processing is under-developing film at the processing stage in order to compensate for overexposed film. Side effects are a decrease in contrast, but it’s a useful technique for rescuing accidental mistakes. These techniques are mainly used with black and white and E6 films. Our specially trained front of house film technicians will be able to answer any of your questions.
