Hi Everyone,

I'm currently looking for a space to set up a darkroom. Unfortunately, it's just not possible in my home. I have all the equipment to get started, I just need the space. Minimum requirements are running water (connected to sewer, not well or septic), and some way to ventilate (such as a window to outside, which I can rig with a ventilation fan).

I'd be willing to pay rent for a space. Maybe you're an analog photographer too, and we can work out a deal.

Just something I've been trying to do for a while. Feel free to message me or post if there is any interest out there.

Thanks!

hi there v11235 - I don't know if it is still around but there at least used to be a rental community darkroom in Hamden, if that helps. Also, have you seen the bathroom darkroom thread here? http://www.apug.org/forums/forum43/46964-bathroom-other-temporary-makeshift-darkrooms.html

Not exactly in Baltimore, but close enough for black & white work http://www.glenechophotoworks.org/

If the job change works out I will be in the Fort Meade area and I have a Jobo processor which can handle black & white and color processing from 35mm to 4"x5".

Thanks for the link. I think that darkroom in Hamden closed 4 or 5 years ago, maybe more. I'll take a look at the bathroom setups that people have put together.

The classes near DC look interesting too. I'll check them out.

Thanks guys!

If you come up with anything I might be interested in joining you and splitting fees depending on where and what.

Sounds good. I'll keep you posted. Nothing quite yet.

What type of work do you do?

With my camera or for money?
I've recently started doing contact prints from paper negatives with a 5x7 and been trying different things out. I had a couple landscapes, an architecture and some portraits that didn't turn out at all. I just had, I guess it would be called a detail of a landscape that turned out great. So I'll be trying more of that. Everything in black and white.

Full circle in charles village rents darkrooms by the hour. Great folks to deal with. There is also an impending community darkroom opening somewhere downtown. Feel free to pm me and I'll dig out the details.

Darkrooms in Baltimore: Full Circle in Charles Village.
(http://fullcirclephoto.com/traditional-services/) Great equipment and very inexpensive. Also on the horizon is a community darkroom at the Current Space (http://www.currentspace.com/) on Howard. Find the darkroom link on the left and send your email. They will notify you of progress and impending events. Full Circle would be my first choice.
