New Project: Darkroom at home…

leave a comment »

Well after a couple of years now of doing black & white printing i am going to eventually put the spare bedroom to some use.  I have always loved the process of developing my own prints so i figured now is the time to try and do it at home.  The major selling point for me is the fact that darkroom equipment is very cheap to pick up secondhand.  Most people would be under the impression that the enlarger  is the most expensive item to purchase but this has not proved to be the case.  The expensive items seem to be the ‘glass’ or enlarger lenses and the suitable neg holders.  Although having said that, i have found the purchase of the equipment very educational.

I don’t want to fill this blog with boring details about the type of lenses i am using etc..but intend to show images of how i am going to transfer this spare bedroom into a fully functional darkroom.  Watch this space..
