Having become a touch disappointed with the inconsistency of colour work I have been getting back from my local D&P, I thought it about time I tried a pro-lab. Having done a bit of reading around the internet, not just reviews, but also the various ethos of different labs, UK Film Lab sounded like the one that would suit me best.
I shall no doubt compile some wider thoughts on their service at some point, but for now, in brief, I shall just say that my experience of their service was as good as I could have wished for.
After what I suppose could be called a consultation telephone meeting with Erica, I decided I would shoot a test roll for them to develop. These are the results of that test roll.
They were shot on Portra 400, with the Leica M-A, 50mm ‘cron and Voigtlander 28mm f1.9 Ultron. I instructed UK Film lab to provide me with straight large scans. Admittedly the content of the photos is nothing to get too excited about, but I am more than happy with the resulting photos.
I have actually had two other rolls back from them, some of which I shall be posting over the next day or so. Short of my sometimes-fishy exposure, they have definitely come back consistent. So far, so good, very happy with my first roll from UK Film Lab
I’ve got stacks more photos back from UK film lab to post over the next few days, so if your interested, keep an eye out…
Cheers for reading
