Where to print?
This is somewhat of a cross post as I initially placed this in the Leica M forum.
Anyway, I don't process myself - I ship my film to North Coast Photo for processing and receive the negatives, scan, and, sometimes, prints. Every so often I come across an image that I would like enlarged - say 8x10 or 8x12. All of my local shops (I'm on Long Island, NY) will do this but do so by first scanning the negative and then printing. As I am relatively new to this (only started in November of last year), am I missing anything by not having the image enlarged directly from the negative? I'd like to see the difference first hand, but am having difficulty locating a shop that still does this. Any ideas as where I can find one?
Thanks in advance for any assistance!
