Bringing Affordable Film Photography to Bed Stuy
Nestled into a small storefront along Marcy Avenue lies Exposure Therapy, a full-service film lab bringing the joy of analog photography to professionals and hobbyists alike. The lab is run by a close knit team, adamant about making film photography accessible to those in the neighborhood. Exposure Therapy aims to bridge the gap between an esoteric old school photo lab and the newer quick processing spots popping up across Brooklyn.
The lab, which has become a neighborhood fixture since opening in 2020 takes a community-oriented approach to their business, getting to know customers on a first name basis and familiarizing themselves with people’s styles and preferences.
If you’re new to shooting film, Exposure Therapy is a great place to start. Not only do they sell a small array of vintage cameras, but they’ll help you get up and running with that old point and shoot sitting on your desk! They’ve got a seamless online system where you can download your scans, so in the case that you don’t care to hold onto your negatives, you need only visit the lab to drop off your roll.
