    Darkroom Sins:

    Ok heres a chance to come clean on habits you have in that darkroom that you could be scolded for!

    DO NOT SCOLD ANYONE FOR ANYTHING... its a fun thread.


    My Sins:

    1) My ventilation is less than perfect, though we are resigning the basement so by July 1st I should have something much more exceptable.

    2) Photography has been a hobby and a passion of mine, of course I have others. One being is cigars. I love em and I sometimes enjoy a fine cigar while printing, and I'm sure to be careful of the brightness of the cherry and such.
    (I can't be the only one who does this!)


    Admit your sins and come clean!

    I have a 2002 Brooke Burke calendar on the wall that I faithfully flip every month. I never looked at the calendar part anyway... even in 2002.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Neal,
    Analogue photography is timeless. Eh, that is what you meant, right?
    Digital is best taken with a grain of silver.

    Um... Uh... Yeah! It's that timeless thing that you said. That's the reason. :rolleyes:

    Not a smoker myself, but in the old days, they would blow smoke under the lens to soften portraits. It can't have been too good for the lens, but you can try it and post some test shots in the Technical Gallery. Try that with a scanner!

    Can one die from passing too much gass in an unventilated darkroom?
    Money is not the problem. The problem is, I don't have any.

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
