    Looks quite professional to me... Especially liked the look of your print cabinet

    Is that a pool table as work table?? Geez...I hope not...shoot some pool while your prints are washing...how cool would that be! But, the flat file is the star of the show...what a beaut!

    Looks good, but I'd cover those white walls near the enlargers with something flat black when printing. Also, make sure that the humidity is well controlled if you store lenses there, or you'll get fungus growing on them, as I know from personal experience.

    The walls of my darkroom are white and I've never had a problem with them. I did use flat white paint so it wouldn't glare (and I wouldn't need my sunglasses). :wink:

    The white walls have caused no problems, I have all the light leaks from above well plugged and work after dark. My enlargers are well masked also.
    I have about 1600 Sq. Ft....EC

    A flat file is one where all the papers you put in it "lie flat" as opposed to standing on end like in a conventional filing cabinet. :smile:

    Geez, Evan... 1600Sq. Ft??? Dang! :surprised:
