It’s time I made an update to the darkroom blog after a bit over a year. Still not doing as much work out there as I thought, but I retired this year so things will pick up. From the post on October 31 of last year:

Still to be done:

• Film drying rack.
• Make a frame for the print drying racks.
• Get a new air compressor.
• Better tray storage.
• Storage for the enlarger lenses.

The film and print drying racks were done timely, as was the procurement of the air compressor. Alas, the enlarger lenses are still in a cardboard box and the trays are still haphazardly stacked under the sink.

I’ve also discovered a new light leak due to cracked seams due to the building shifting. These things are inevitable and unavoidable; and easily fixed with some caulk and paint, but …

It never ends …


  1. Хорошя темная комната! Это мечта! Очень удобная и располагает к творчеству! Спасибо!


  2. Thanks, Yuri!

    (He said: Good dark room! It's a dream! Very comfortable and has to be creative! Thank you!)

  3. I found your blog when googling darkroom rentals in DFW. Its been 5 years since I was in a darkroom in college, would you ever consider classes or renting?

    1. It's been almost 6 years since this post was made. The darkroom in this old blog no longer exists, I have moved. (There will be another)

      I do teach at Dallas Center for Photography. There are no darkroom workshops scheduled at the moment - probably in the Fall - but you could give them a call and tell them you're interested.
