    This darkroom is located in the basement of a student residential building and there are logbooks from the 60's in here, so it has a long history.
    This is nice, might have to rethink the wall finish in my next darkroom.

    The window is blocked out right now but I'm building a ventilation system that will fit in it. Since it's only useable at night I'm going to build some light walls around the space too. It's a work in progress but at least I can print now and hey, it's got a Godzilla poster too.

    I like your Poster, but I might suggest putting dark cloth on the walls you are close to as to avoid reflection off the walls from the enlarger light. It can cause a bit of fogging on the paper or a loss of local contrast in the image.

    I'm adding an example...

    See the first or 7th picture as an example of what I am talking about.

    If you can't you will live without it, but I think that close to the corner you will see a difference.


    Great start!

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    Thanks for the tip, Robert. I'll give that a try.
    What kind of material would you suggest? Just something black? We have a pretty good fabric store here maybe I'll pay them a visit to see what they have.

    Nice darkroom by the way.

    A great quickie solution is black poster board, available at your local drug store.

    Any flat (non shiny) fabric will work, if you can get flat black poster board, that would work too, but get what ever is easiest to store and the cheapest.

    Thanks for the kind words about the darkroom. Stop by for a little workshop sometime. I was just through your neck of the woods. Lovely place. I'll drop you an email next time Im out that way.

    When i was there i was the only student actually using the private room as a darkroom for processing and not as another storage unit... So i guess its not that much of a shame.
    I remember taking a tour on that floor as a prospective student 2 years prior, and they had a mural printing room with a magnetized and vacuum wall for UL prints, an 8X10 enlarger on a dolly rail and all the gear... that was gone by the time i got there to make room for a new digital printing room...
    Who cares about all those rich kids anyways, let them shoot their holgas and be art students.

    At the fabric store, ask if they have "blackout cloth". I have a few yards of that which I purchased primarily for light-blocking, but it's black and matte and probably would work fairly well.

    If you want/need total overkill at a matching price, then consider telescope flocking. Here's an example page for Protostar's flocking products, you can find others via web search.
