    Default Old Photo Shops

    Hi all,
    Remember those photo shops (with studios containing elaborate backdrops, settings, & props for portraiture) under the flats, sprung up and popular in the 70s/80s, and does film process, printing, portraiture/passport photos for the regular family...Are they still existent? Let me know if there's one in your neighbourhood. I'm looking high and low...Thanks many!

    If I remember correctly, Hawaii is opposite Siglap Centre.
    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.

    There's one in Peninsula shopping centre, level 2 and they still shoot film and touch up the photos by hand - very quaint.

    Sadly, hawaii's grade has fallen ... parents went there to shoot some photos for passport. .. they got a shock when the photos came out.
