    I think they sell darkening materials like that in better photo stores. When I used to use my apartment bathroom as a darkroom, I simply used a simple wide tape and some heavy cardboard to seal the window (bathroom window aren't usually very big, and I just taped around the door. Real gaffer's tape can be expensive. A bathroom is actually handy, if you live alone, because there's an exhaust fan in it already.

    kevin, i just looked at your site. very, very nice work. loud hawaiian shirts eh? well....you live a lot closer to there than i do.

    stores like Joann Fabrics, or any other comprehensive fabric store has lots to choose from. for my dark cloth, which is quite light-tight, we used two (and that's the key to making fabrics light-tight) layers of a high thread count cotton. on sale at the time (not uncommon), the stuff was quite reasonable. such a store is a good place to start in any case.

    Hello John,

    Thank you very much. I appreciate your feedback. Yeah, I figure the brighter and louder the better! LOL! I will have to go by the store on Monday. This could be very cool. How can you make contact sheets without and enlarger? I would love to be able to get contact sheets of the negatives I shot.

    Thanks,

    kev

    Hello Steve,

    Thanks for the link. Have to head over there now and do some reading. So it is possible then to make contact sheets without the need of an enlarger right? Anyway off to reading.

    Thanks,

    Kev

    Yeah, PML is growing quite a bit and it is expensive especially for being up here. I do not live in PML I am further out which is nice.

    I think the best time up here is when is snows also in a few weeks the flowers should be in bloom in the Kennedy Meadows area and the waterfalls are toning down a bit as well so you can start hiking the rivers.

    I am planning on taking a trip over the pass a few times in the ext 2 weeks.
