DARKROOM SETUP INSPIRATION

Posted in DARKROOM, INSPIRATION by Nicole Gelinas on April 9, 2012

I came across these images by Richard Nicholson while searching for some inspiration on how to set up a darkroom. Why was I looking for inspiration for a darkroom? Because I just bought a whole setup from my friend Keryn (who you may remember from last weeks post as a donator of a bunch of film!) It came with everything except chemicals and a darkroom safelight! I was curious to see what other darkrooms looked like, other than the ones I have used which were in high school and college. I have not had a chance to set it all up yet, but when I do I will definitely post some pics for you to see!

The photos below are from Richard Nicholson’s series is called: Analog – Last One Out, Please Turn On The Light, which is a survey of London’s remaining professional darkrooms from 2006-2010. To see more of his images please visit his website!

      Yeah you are probably right! These setups are from professionals, mine will look nothing like these! Hah! I am just going to put mine in my closet with the few supplies I have a go for it!
