Question re: differences between professionally developed negatives and my own
Is there a difference in quality between negatives I develop myself in my local lab and having my negatives developed at a camera store? I enjoy the photo printing process, but loading the film and going through the developing process is a bit of a pain to me. But if I'm going to see a drop in quality, obviously, it may be worth it. I guess I just can't imagine how it would make a difference.

If you know what you are doing, processing it yourself isn't hard and you'd probably do just as good or better job than the labs will. They labs just subcontract it out to someone who does the same thing. I've had a roll of 120 Tri-X ruined by the B/W guy that the old Fotoguide used.
But if you find it a hassle then giving it to the labs may be the way to go.
