Ok, so I finally get to mess with a serious darkroom. My dad thinks I'm nuts and should just shoot digital. :mrgreen: My concern is the drying of the prints. My mom used a "glossyfyer" (err... direct translation from russian) and it was a pain to clean it every time. My dad used a clean glass. He wasn't too happy about it either. I'm hoping there've been some amazing technological advances in the industry... Is there any way to avoid sticking the prints onto something? I think matte will do it for me... at least at the beginning stages of my darkroom printing experience.
