    Darkroom Portraits (Part 2)

    Splitting the large portraits thread (also, keep in mind we have a gallery category for this as well: http://www.apug.org/gallery1/browseimages.php?c=517 ).

    The original thread post below from Argentic:

    Darkroom portraits

    The first darkroom you build for an enemy.
    The second one you build for a friend.
    And the third one you build for yourself.

    Until now I have built five darkrooms. But there are still things to improve. And everytime I study other peoples darkrooms, I learn one or two nice tricks.

    Would you mind posting some images of your darkroom? I'll start with mine. I use it one day every week. And even after about twenty years of darkroom work, I still want to change things. (That's why I got the idea of this thread.) My desktop is very cluttered because I'm in the middle of a rearranging my darkroom.

    Thanks Sean

    For those who would like to look through the closed, first part of this thread, here is the link: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum43/1...portraits.html

    This may not be as important for two parts of a "Sticky" thread as in other cases

    Timely reminder that this resource is here. I'm in the stage of wiring up my darkroom/bathroom and wondering where to put the safe light. I was think of hanging it over the sink (700mm x 2700mm) but at the left end which is were the developer tray is. That way it also will light up the bench to the left. Thoughts, attach is PDF is layout.

    Shane:

    Whatever you decide, try to make sure that you won't find yourself having to work in your own shadow either at the sink or elsewhere (paper storage/cutter, easel).

    Somewhere in a corner that results in light being reflected off of large surfaces tends to work well.

    Not sure that I ever posted shots of mine ... here are a few. Excuse the explanation captions, I had those on for some people that didn't have a darkroom and probably didn't know what half the stuff in there was.

    *just saw a typo on my explanation - said Ilford 300, when should have said Ilford 500H! Doh!

    Beautiful DR Katie! You could have at least taken the vestments off the enlarger for a picture

    Yeah! Don't hide that Omega from us. You need more sink. You can never have too much sinkage.

    EDIT: this was my 300th post; I am embarrassed that I didn't make better use of it!

    Here's some pix of my little darkroom - only 4' x 6'6", but it works for me. I made my sink - ply and epoxy coated. Wish I had more space, but hey! I do have an office adjacent that I can use for any non-darkroom work.
