Sometimes I'm tired or I don't have time to get out the pots and pans to cook a meal. I just need to eat something.

    I think your entire post has got to be one of the best I've ever heard, and it so true. This will be one of those explanations that'll stick with me for sure. Thanks!

    It doesn't take much. All together I've got about $300 or so in it. I stalked ebay for days... and i'm still stalking it for a few other things I'd like to have. I got a GraLab timer for less than $20, found a beginners enlarger for $50 on craigslist, and bought a few things new from Freestyle Photo.

    I set everything up in the bathroom at my studio and made it work. It was quick, down, and dirty, but it worked. As I spend more time working, I'll figure out ways to make things more comfortable and flow a little better.

    Christopher, you're where I'm aiming to be by the end of the year. Thanks for posting your results - it's inspired me and made me even more excited about setting up my own darkroom after years in the wilderness. Keep on!

    Your welcome!

    I'm planning on spending a great amount of time in there this week sometime. I hope to create at least one 5x7 that I can mat and frame. I also need to get out and shoot some more film too!

    Good work. Welcome back to the darkroom. I reconstituted my darkroom a few weeks ago after an 8 year absence.

    I think your print looks nice. I think most photographers feel their prints can always be tweaked more. I'm in the same position as you. I just picked up my first enlarger yesterday and I'm still a few things away from making my first print, but I'm psyched

    Thanks Stephen! Good luck with your new dark room as well! It's turning out to be WAY more fun than I even remembered!
