The new Darkroom

Now that we’re settled into the new place, it is time to build the darkroom!
I started with a cluttered walk-in closet.

Added 2x4s for shelving brackets, then some cut plywood as the shelving.

Connected power to the light in the closet, and now to unpack my darkroom items. Most everything is already unpacked. MUCH better than what I was working with....

I use an ancient Beseler 23C II which gives me those cool borders on my prints. That and the bright aluminum negative holders. The new ones are all black.
Next few days I’ll put up the darkroom cloth and begin printing.
