Curious about what the darkrooms of our fellow film photographers look like? An interesting Flickr group holds the answer with a lot of drool-worthy photos. Come and take a look!
It was only last week that I shared a nice documentary short nicely demonstrating the darkroom process, and today, I found something that will make that itch for a swanky darkroom a full-blown craving.
It’s a group on Flickr called Darkroom Portraits where, as the name suggests, the members showcase their darkroom setup, with all their awesome equipment for the world to marvel at. From the pro-looking work spaces, to refurbished basement darkrooms, and make-shift bathroom setups, I was amazed at them all. Members also occasionally share the actual photos and contact sheets printed in their darkrooms, reminding those of us who are yet to have our own spaces of what we have been missing out on.
It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I find this sweet and simple setup a really smart one:
Do you have a bathtub? Yes? Then, there’s no excuse for you to not have your own darkroom now.
Do you already have your own darkroom? Maybe the stuff over at The Sexy Film Stash group will make you want to replenish your own film stash instead!
