Your first darkroom!
With the weather cooling down (even here in LA), it’s nice to sit at home and dig through the old photos scanned to the hard drive.
Here’s a pic of my younger brother helping me in my first home darkroom, circa late-1974 (B&W Polaroid photo). No enlarger at this point, only contact prints. Then a pano of the same room a few years later.
Finally a screenshot of a set of my very first 126 photos as contact prints, 1974-5.
Please post some of your old darkroom facility photos.
Re: Your first darkroom!
Thanks Doug! I still have a LOT of negatives – but sadly, not all of them. I had this "brilliant" idea back in the late '80s to trim my negative strips down and file the 2, 3 or 4 frame pieces by subject in plastic sheets, while discarding the rest...
I filled up a paper shopping bag with the scraps and was so proud of myself-! Imagine how many more images I would have to scan and share now. But nobody told me the internet was coming!
The good news is, I know where the negatives are (a landfill on a small college campus in Texas). The bad news is, no one is going to dig them up.
