    Building a Vintage darkroom but I'm a noob so it could all go horribly wrong..

    Actually once I get my feet under me (and get a clue to what you just said) I'll probably be really interested in branching out into some wild stuff. One of the reasons I'm using vintage equipment is I'm not terribly interested in the crispest, sharpest image I can produce but the coolest...

    That's for the heads up on the carpet. I'm still trying to figure a lot out and I appreciate the input. I rent so I don't know about taking the carpet out but I'm going to find out. Sent from my GT-N7000 using Tapatalk 2

    Man I appreciate the input and I might take you up on that. I plan on starting with black and white and see where it takes me. I have the timer, safelight, trays, (all vintage and super cool looking, check back often as I will upload pics as they arrive) and a few other things all on the way to...

    New guy Wondering if the enlarger I have listed here is a good one?

    TODAYS PROGRESS Added a cool metal piece that I had around the house to use as my "clothes line" The vintage developing hangers that I have coming are going to look awesome on it.

    What would you recommend for a lens? I don't mind spending a little money on it since I didn't have to shell out anything for the enlarger.

    Thanks Ann I might take you up on that. I'm headed to Atlanta in a few weeks for Scott Antique markets show. I'm doing as many vintage items as possible to kind of set my darkroom apart and I'm into that kind of stuff so I'm getting a lot of that on ebay and etsy. Check out my other thread to...

    I found a free (working!) Beseler 23cII XL on craigslist, keeping my fingers crossed that I'm not to late to get it.

    I'm using vintage items as much as possible safelight, trays, enlarger etc. I've ordered a couple of these things and will add pictures to this thread as they arrive.
