This is a bit of nostalgia for something that will never return, at least not on the same scale. I spent many years in such places in the 70s and 80s. I totally love working in Photoshop but I also miss these times. It was expensive and smelly and slow but oh so magical. The first experience of seeing an image start to appear in the developer dish never left me and I had the same experience with every print I ever made and there were thousands of them.
This line from the video is easily under valued but is profoundly true. “If you make a print you will get the benefit. And the next picture you take you will see it better because you made prints.”
