“Good Morning” Film Photography Contest!

Mornings. Whether you love them or loathe them, we all experience them. But what are your mornings like? What makes them good? The smell of fresh-brewed coffee, the sweet arrival of sunrise, the moment of calm before the world wakes up. For our next film competition, show us something you love about your mornings! Bed head portraits, coffee, commute candids, sunrise, cafes – anything that incapsulates your “Good Morning.”

This contest will run January 10th through Febuary 28, 2018 and is open to U.S. only.  For all you international film shooters out there, don’t worry, our next contest will be open internationally.  So stay tuned and spread the word! 

For chance to win one of the many great film cameras from our Camera Bar all you have to do is post one of your color or black and white film photo on your Facebook wall or on your Instagram.  Be sure to tag us, use the #TheDarkroomLab_Morning, explain the photo well in the caption, and tell us the film type, camera used, and where you got it developed (hopefully The Darkroom!). *You are limited to one submission.  If multiple photos are posted we will only consider the first submission.

Good luck!!!
