    Wow. A Canadian that uses the word "y'all." As someone who was born in the Southern US (Georgia) and also uses the word "y'all," I'm impressed.

    As for what type of room can be used for a darkroom, I would say the bathroom as long as you can block all the light out of it. I would refer you to the "Bathroom and other Temporary/Makeshift Darkrooms" thread but JBrunner beat me to it. Welcome to APUG!

    I think the way to go is with medium format in the bathroom. Developing tank, measuring cup for developer, bottle of fixer, water stop bath. Sheet of foam rubber and a sheet of 8X10 picture glass for contacts. Light bulb for exposure.

    A fair number of people here also visit other photo related websites regularly.

    Well, they were right. The knowledge of these people is incredible, as is their willingness, even eagerness to help others.

    Sorry, but books are ESSENTIAL. It has been said that if you read 5 books on any subject, you will know more about that subject than 90% of the people on earth. No amount of conversation can come anywhere near giving you the amount of information you need. I would advise that you read everything you can find and then ask questions about things that you didn't understand in what you read. You will learn much more and much more quickly that way.

    Not true ... Everyone learns differently mr and I learn fom spacific questions and little reading maybe sections from one book and mainly the book I already have - do telling someone to read a book is. It at all helpful. I'm just saying obviously your the type that needs to read five books in one subject? Lol the help people give on this site are very comical not to mention in order to have full everything u have I pay... It's a forum!!!! And on top of that this site is way less helpful then the medium format I think I have better help emailing a famous photographer and black mailing him
    I'm
    Just saying this was like the fourth comment with a full response. Everyone learns differently I learn the way I'm asking here - thank you.

    It seems as if you've never been in a darkroom, so you'll need to do some research before you even know what questions to ask...
    Many of us have been doing this for decades, and still refer to books (and, now, websites) to improve our skills. If you're not willing to put in the time, and effort, your results, and sense of satisfaction, will be disappointing.
