I have never had my own darkroom, and because I could not afford one, shot slides for long.
I have just acquired a MF enlarger with paraphernalia, which I hope to collect this coming week. I then will have to build a dark room. I finally have the space to do that.
Although I have a very capable, professional high-end scanner, I spend so much time behind the screen for my work (24/7) that I prefer the analogue way to capture and print. Or so I think for the time being. But I have used a dark room before, I'm sure I'll enjoy the manual work. Even if I'm only selecting very few pictures—or perhaps, just because I know I will.
