Long story short: You will find them online. Raw, skewed, bland, unedited or edited in a different style. And there's a good chance your name will be there for 'credit'.

This is the #1 reason historically why photographers haven't let customers have the negatives (RAW files today) - they didn't want to risk their reputation being ruined with shoddy post-processing/printing.  I never agreed that the risk was as big as some feared as long as the contract stipulated that the client was barred from any public attribution, but the risk remained nevertheless - especially by word of mouth which was the bigger risk.

To me, anyhow, this is really the only risk.  Requests for reprints were so few that the argument about making any substantial profit on them was a wives tale  - it was more of a pain than it was worth most of the time.

The one thing everyone can agree on is that film photography has its negatives. It even has its positives and internegatives.
