    First time APUG poster, so I hope this works...

    Wow! I am so glad to see that the darkroom is still alive and well and that there are still some traditional shooters out there. I've been an APUG lurker for maybe a couple months now, but only just now starting to really see what's all here.

    It's wonderful to see so many variations on the darkroom theme and what works for different folks. I know there are a few ideas out there that never even occurred to me and now I want to implement some of them. I hope too much reading of this post doesn't end up making me unhappy with what I have!

    I'd love to post a few photos of my darkroom, but it seems I must have them available online with a URL in order to do that. (I ain't got not website for that so...oh well) I live in a downtown loft that had a large closet/laundry/bathroom arrangement and my loving wife elected to cede this space over to me for a darkroom last Christmas. It isn't ideal; I wish I had room for a proper sink, but the space works out allright for me for now.

    BTW: I live in Dallas, TX. Not too big a photo town and certainly not too much film photography happening (it seems). If any B&W film shooters from the DFW area are interested, I'd like to talk about getting a small group together for critiques, photo/portfolio reviews and general photog talk every so often. Maybe PM me if you're up for that....

    Welcome to APUG!

    You can post the photos as an attachment. Here is how:

    Either use the "Post Reply" function or the "Go Advanced" function below the "Quick Reply" box.

    The attachment function is the little "paper clip" icon on the top line in the grey box.

    Note the restrictions on file sizes and image sizes in the "Attachment Key" - remember that horizontal images have more space available to them then vertical ones.

    Upload your image (after resizing? and adjusting the file size?).

    Close the window and finish your post.

    Hope this helps.
    Matt

    Welcome to APUG. There are a number of B&W shooters in DFW. There is a small group of large format guys that get together fairly often, but you'll find them over on the large format forum. APUG get togethers have happened from time to time, but no one seems to want to be the one to propose a time and place.

    You can show us pictures of your darkroom without a website, just do an attachment to a post in the thread. Below the box for writing a post, there is a button for "manage attachments".

    Also, check out my "pending" darkroom at the link in my signature.

    Taking pictures is easy. Making photographs is hard.

    My Darkroom

    Mattking - Thanks for the info on posting photos! Seems like I tried to do it on another subject and it was asking me for a URL, or something like that, which I neither have, nor understand how to do if I did!

    So, here are a couple photos of my humble darkroom. It's not everything I'd like it to be, but I can manage to make prints to 11x14 and hopefully 16x20 soon. I tend to pin 8x10 workprints to the wall (suggestion from Mike Johnston; TOP) as a means of "editing" and it seems to work out well. He said that if you still like it after a few days of looking at it on the wall, there's a good chance it can hold up as a portfolio, or series selection later. Anyway...I've really enjoyed looking over this huge thread and seeing the many MANY different iterations of the traditional darkroom.

    Looks pretty good to me-darkrooms always evolve over time anyway.

    Ah, just got my local ironmonger to fabricate it. Of course I had to give him a good drawing and measurements. Cost me around USD160.00
