Image Lab Photography - 234 E. Babcock Street, Bozeman MT. The studio is on the second floor at the end of the hallway.
About The Process:
Photographic film is made up of a flexible transparent plastic which is coated with silver based chemicals. When exposed to light these chemicals transform and once developed create a negative image of what the camera saw. The earliest use of photography dates back to 1839 which did not use film but printed directly onto a plate. It wasn’t until 1908 when Kodak introduced the first flexible transparent film that we are familiar with today. Film photography saw a sharp decline in usage with the birth of digital photography. In recent years there has been a renewed interest in film and its unique set of challenges and qualities.
