Small shooting space made this kind of difficult, but this is pretty much what it looks like.
You really gotta love photography to go to those extremes. Bless you!
Good idea and i like it too
but i am busy and have no room to built my darkroom.
hope the day when i have time and the room.
I don't find it particularly "extreme"; it looks more like a clever use of existing space. Many people use the bathroom as a darkroom; running water is such a plus.
Looking forward to seeing prints out of this!
I want a dark room so bad. Maybe soon. I like the setup you have there, what do you have covering the window?
It's cardboard, which actually doesn't work too well. It's attached with velcro, which makes it easy to take on and off (something I wanted so the shower would be usable), but it does allow light leaks around the side. As it stands I can only use it at night. It would work a lot better to just put up some kind of black material and tape around the edges, but then, not so easy to take it off then back on.
Maybe just put the shower curtain up?
Look like a lot of school surplus stuff. My dark room looks a lot like that.
I use a peice of plywood with foam pipe lagging around the perimiter. When I want the darkroom I simply push it inti the window reveal & the foam seals the light out.
When my wife demands the use of the room for crafts with the kids I pull it out again.
Kinda reminds me of a drug dealers bathroom.
I ran the same setup in 80s when I was 16.
20 years later - I went digital and here is my darkroom:
i would like to have a dark room, it looks like it would be fun to develop your own film
