    Renting darkroom space

    I'm taking an introductory B&W class but sadly it will be over at the end of this semester. I don't have space to do a full on darkroom at my apartment so I was wondering do places that rent out darkroom space still exist? I was figuring on developing negatives at home and renting a darkroom to make prints. Any thoughts on this?

    Good Luck I am looking for the same thing since I am moving in a coupple months, I have found most places that did rent darkroom space have either stopped or are planning to stop. Listings I have found in my area seem to be out of date.

    This link may be of some use...

    Most places do it. Just ask.

    I use a pro lab's darkroom down the street.

    Woah! That's where I go!

    Didn't see you were a Sacramentan, monkeykoder. The Darkroom/Photosource is a great place and you can rent out their darkroom.

    Their fees are (off the top of my head):
    $10/hr to print Black and White
    $.50 for kept 8x10's
    $.75 for kept 11x14's

    On a very similar note, does anyone know of any place in New York City they can recommend?

    Friends of mine use Printspace on 7th & 19th and the Camera Club - which works out well if you use the darkrooms a lot.

    There's also My Own Colorlab at 18 W 27th St Fl 3, New York (212) 696-4107.

    Best,
    Helen
