    Well, I did it. I made a Polaroid of the combination darkroom / laundry and posted it in "Non Gallery". It has to be about the worst image I've made in quite a few years. Sorry about the Papillion wall paper. It was there when I moved in.

    This seemed to put off one student upon their visit as they ask. “Is this where all those ‘prize-winning’ photographs are made?” I don’t know what they expected – maybe they had been reading AA’s books (as required) and had formulated a preconceived notion of what a darkroom should be. I told them their darkroom should suit them in their endeavors what ever that entails. It doesn’t _have_ to be pretty or expensive.

    Truly, dr bob.

    I thought it would be fun to bring this thread back, since there are so many new members since the last time this thread was active. So lets see some pics, and hear about your darkroom!

    I just "upgraded" my enlarger with a condensor head. I'm going to see if I can get any better results out of my old negs. (and newer ones)

    I have a small one in my basement. It has running water, a small vent, and just enough room for a print washer and trays. My only fault is that I never keep it as clean as it should be. Working in a nice darkroom makes things easier, but I tend to leave things out and not clean up after me. Usually once a month I'll do a really good cleaning and re-paint the floor if needed (cement).

    Only other thing to think of would be a sliding door that disappears into the wall. Very dependant on how the wall is put together whether it would even be possible let alone practical. Wonder how a bifold door would work in a situation like yours?
    I've worked in some tiny darkrooms, one real advantage is the ability to reach almost anything from where you're seated. Yours sounds like a quite nice one.
