    Hey Gang,

    Anyone know of any rental darkrooms in the Ottawa area?

    Cheers!

    I can't speak for 'Tawa because I don't live there but I would suggest, based on my Montreal experience, to:

    - Check at the universities (in Mtl: McGill & UdeM have pub labs)
    - Check your local arts centers (Saidye Bronfmann in Mtl)
    - Move to Montreal.

    Woops.

    Don't know but I think Henry's used to rent out darkrooms. Didn't they buy out a bunch of stores up there in the last year? Colleges and Universities sometimes do too.
    Down here in Toronto most places have either stopped or now have dry-to-dry machines which means no FB paper :sad: or toning.

    Go to Galaxy Camera at the corner of Bank Street and Catherine. They have darkroom space for rent by the hour - at least, they used to. Here's the link
