    I beg to differ PE!

    IMHO, ALL photography is at least a little bit magic

    All you need is a dry lab and you begin to get such discharges. You can even generate them with scotch tape. Put some tape onto a piece of plastic, sit in the dark to adapt your eyes and then peel the tape off of the plastic. You will see bright flashes.

    I actually hate when this happens when I double load 120 film, which I have to remove atleast one piece of tape to adhere to next roll to fit on one spool. If I see sparks I go super slow and usually breathe a bit of moist air onto the area.

    Ah, yes, that's a common phenomenon, with cameras with manual rewind knob it is advised to rewind the film slowly to avoid static electricity discharges, which will be visible in the images. Nihil novi sub sole.

    MattKing, your answer is incredibly stupid. Are you aware of the fact that there are many international memebers on APUG, like me, who are not english native speakers? That complicates the things a little bit, maybe you would know if you spoke more languages. Anyhow, if drylab (which, by the way, is not even a word that one could look up in the dictonary) is the dry part of a darkroom, the linguistic variation is not so obvious, I mean, after all it could mean something else besides an inkjet printer. I hope your snobism has given you a nice life, and will improve it with time.

    Actually over here in Canada , if one says they use a dry lab it does mean inkjet prints.
    Also others use the room light room to signify they are using a computer to image.

    Wow. I think you ought to switch to decaffeinated coffee.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    At Kodak, we had a "dry side" and a "wet side" denoting the separation of photosensitive materials and processing chemicals respectively. This was rigidly enforced. There was no dry lab, but there were wet labs outside of the darkroom. The term dry lab is recent. Since I sometimes do mixed analog negative to digital printing, you might say I am in my dry lab right now!

    Sometimes, the term "dry lab" is often used by EEs and MEs as well as Physicists when they refer to their lab. They have totally dry labs, whereas chemists always have wet labs.
