    After six-seven months I finished update of my darkroom, in the first photos the darkroom yesterday other photos are the new set up.

    The third photos is my contact print exposing with my new Inglis 8x20" contact printer, very useful and well made.

    The fifth photos is the wet place, and the sixth photos is my press mounting on the wall to save space, now a my friend has almost finished the mechanism to up the press only by a finger.

    I have also an enlarger, a durst m605 colour, sometimes I have to print old negatives, even if now all my work is done by 8x10 and 8x20 and contact prints.

    Hi Tom,

    I print all my work on silver-chloride paper like Azo and Lodima.
    Sometimes but not often(particolar project), I print some 5x7" in platinum/Palladium, and I cand do easily, putting my light at the minor distance from the contact printer and changing the bulb with a black lamp(power enough), and work properly.

    p8x10, looks like it turned out great! Much nicer to work in an organized workplace don't you think? The only thing I'd recommend is not storing the press like that. While it may not result in anything, I don't think the side bolt connection will wear well if used and restored frequently. Presses are always difficult to store somewhere without taking up a lot of space unfortunately.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Yes Clayne, a well organized workplace is important all works are done in better way and also losing less time. About the press at the beginning I had lots of doubt, I don't use it lots or better I use to mount a huge amount of prints all together, so only in determinate case I use it. I waiting for my friend lift press mechanism to see how will work....
    I missed a good occasion, but I knew about it when I just finished my update, that a photographer sold all your darkroom, all the materials inside and also the room.... :-(
    A very good price... not expensive!!!!!

    After a few days working nine to five on this, I guess you can call it a working darkroom. Mostly, I painted one of the three rooms and its door and cleaned up the entire mess.
    This is the darkroom of the school I graduated from and which I will return to to give lessons on enlarging/developping and points of interest starting september.
    I didn't think it was in this bad a shape though. I don't have a picture prior to the refurbishing, but it was coated with loads of dead insects, spider webs, rust and soot.
    I'm still not done, I want to paint the entire darkroom, build a chair and table for the orange-colored room as well as a bench for the garden right out the window... the images link to bigger images by the way

    here's the new door (with self-made sign, translates to 'darkroom'):


    a peak at the dry side and a detail of a remnant of the room's first purpose:






    the wet side (with painting stuff):


    and finally, the newly painted room, to be used as a place for relaxation and as a small gallery:




    There's still quite a bit of work to be done, but at least you can let people in again...
    I'm also open to suggestions, if anyone has ideas for improvement.
    -Jannis
