Photo Developers Reveal The Most Shocking Things They’ve Seen On Customer Cameras

News & Culture Writer


About 15 years ago, the only way you could see the pictures you took was to take the entire roll of film to your local drugstore — or if you really want to date back, a Fotomat — to have them developed by a photo-lab employee. This is the conceit of this Ask Reddit thread, which poses the question: “People who have developed film, what is the most shocking thing you have ever seen on a customer’s camera?” As long as the contents weren’t illegal or violated company policy, back in the day, you pretty much had to develop whatever a customer brought in.

With the advances in technology over the past decade or so, the need to pick up embarrassing pictures has been mostly eliminated, although there were still a few that involved digital printing or kiosks. We’ve sorted through some of the best, but if you want to get lost for a few hours, check out the complete thread.
