Re: Darkroom cleared up - work still to do - door won't shut!

The Forest Artist Facilities working group is meeting on Wednesday at 7pm again, would be good if one of us could go along and report on where things stand with the darkroom. Lucea, are you around then?

Darkroom is up and running - now for medium format too!

Hey all,

Just a quick note to say that the darkroom is fully operational again now, and we also have a second enlarger running for printing from 6x6cm medium format negatives!

If you want to use the room just post in this thread, or email darkroom@theforest.org.uk.

Re: Darkroom cleared up - work still to do - door won't shut!

Great stuff! I think the slot on the M370 BW enlarger is probably to slot a filter holder into, but we've never had the right bit to go in there and Fergus was just using it with a bit of tape over the hole. As to the mark in the lens on the Leitz, that's a great shame as it always used to work fine...

There is one safelight still working - the round one at the far end of the room - on which about half the area of the filter is taped up because the filter material is cracked.

As to the rest; there isn't any protocol I'm aware of yet for photo sharing. This is something that's really lacking. It's easy enough to host the image files themselves, but some standard HTTP-based interface that let you get metadata, and versions of the image at different sizes, would be awesome.
