I have 2 windows in my darkroom that allow me to use it as a room with daylight when not blacked out. One window overlooks the garden of our house and the other surrounding fields as shown, giving a pretty restful view. For others with darkroom windows, what’s your view like?
I will be using my upstairs bathroom as a darkroom soon (will cover the window). The view is of a streetlight and the street that runs perpendicular to our house. Actually, it's a nice suburban development, so we have a lot of trees and flowers along the streets. The streetlight was made to look like an old post lamp, but it makes it seem like the sun is rising in the middle of the nite.
No view, except when I am at the kitchen sink to develop film or prints in tubes.
In which case I can see homes, a bit of farmland, and then some of the Gulf Islands and San Juan Islands in the distance.
“Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”
