My entire full basement is dark. One room for film with a 6 foot wet sink another room for platinum with coating and drying area, another room with a 14 foot wet sink a dry area with enlarger and counter spaces. A bathroom and the laundry room where I steam platinum prints. I sort of lost the sense of magic when prints come up in a tray many years ago but I still love seeing a print finished and framed. One thing I love about my darkroom is that it is nice a cool in the Summer heat. Also that I can walk out of the film room in the middle of a process and answer the phone in another room. Or I can leave a print in the developer and go to the bathroom and turn on the light. Or I can go with a beer and play darts.
