The school semester is coming to an end and the last day to work in the lab on my campus is this Sunday. I think I'm going to feel very empty during the summer not being able to have fun in the darkroom. Therefore I was thinking about setting up my own at home just for the summer. I think I'd just use this for processing paper negatives from pinhole cameras and am thinking of either using my garage, the bathroom, or my bedroom. So what would I need to set this up?

  1. 4 Trays
  2. Chemicals
  3. Safelight
  4. Tongs


I might be leaving something out though. Any suggestions as to what chemicals would be best for a home "darkroom" (powder vs. liquid developer, brand of fix, stop,...etc.)? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
