    It's not small it's cozy

    Here's mine.
    We have a half bath downstairs that I can quickly convert into a cute little darkroom when needed. So far it's been great. My favorite part is the sponge painting somebody did. Kinda looks like they stenciled poop all over the walls. My wife and I got a kick out of it but now it's been painted over.

    Half bath, brings back memories... It looks pretty familiar, but I like the layout better than the one I worked in before we moved. Two questions.

    1) How is the ventilation? I had problems with ventilation in the one I worked in because the door was totally NOT lightproof and I had to arrange a blackout cloth darken it. After doing that, there was no way for air to come in and replace the air that was being removed, so the ventilation was, after a while, effectively nonexistent. My eyes don't like fixer fumes, so that was an issue for me. If it hadn't been a rental, I would have made some revisions to ensure that I solved that problem.

    2) Where do you put the enlarger? Or are you a contact printer? It looks like you would need to put the enlarger over the toilet, as the rest of the space is spoken for.

    Since I only have time to print at night I don't have problems with stray light or at least I haven't seen any fogging problems. Ventilation is solved by me going in and out a lot. The paper always gets put back in the box and it's dark enough outside the bathroom that I don't worry about anything else.

    I'm only doing contact printing right now (an enlarger may be in my future) so this set up is perfect. If I had to I guess I could put an enlarger on the toilet seat. I figured that I should keep it simple and get some practice in before making things more complicated. Actually this is advice I've seen a lot around here so I figured these people know what they're talking about. Turns out they do.

    I should also mention that I do all my film processing with a Harrison tent and Jobo drums. The bathroom is for printing only.

    I'm going to make some prints as soon as I post this. I shot some 6.5x9 sheets of Efke 25 this week and wanted to see the prints. The negs look good so I'm just itching to make prints!

    If you can find the pictures of my dark/bathroom way up there, you can see my rolling typewriter-table arrangement for the enlarger over the toilet. Since you're in Princeton, you can even come by and take a look at it, if you're in Manhattan (when I get back into town).

    Very nice, Philippe!

    From now on, I'm calling my darkroom: "mon laboratoire".

    Cheers,

    Taking pictures is easy. Making photographs is hard.

    At last it is done! Well, useable anyway...

    I've been working on my new darkroom since we moved here over a year ago, and just processed the first films in it this morning. At nearly 300 square feet it's huge compared to the closet I had before. I built the sink out of 3/4 inch marine plywood and finished it with 5 coats of garage floor paint. The ventilation above the backsplash is a section of square vinyl raingutter downspout. I cut slots in it and plumbed it through the back wall to a fan. It exhausts outside through a dryer vent. The vent tube is attached to the wall, not the sink, so if I need to move the sink for something I need only disconnect the drain. The sink measures 8 feet by 2.5 feet. The enlarger table measures 3 feet by 6.5 feet. The enlager table and sink stand are actually reloading bench legs from Cabela's to which I added 2x4's and 3/4 inch plywood. I still need to build a rack to hold my drying screens, but that won't be difficult. I'm quite excited to get back to printing!

    Is that a digital thermometer above the sink? What brand. Calumet used to sell one and I never bought it. Now they don't have it anymore.

    Well...hey you! Nice to see you back! I thought you might have gone over to the dark side...but, at least to some extent...you didn't! As the Ausies say: " Good on ya!"

    It's a "PROTEMP," made by Dunwright & Vogel and I absolutely love it. I'm not sure where you would get one these days.
