Yesterday me and my friend Rick moved the heavy bits of the Durst L184 enlarger. Yep You really need two persons if you want to maken life a little bit easier. Today I started to build the beat up. And I have to say I am pretty amazed with myself. That is because in the last 3 years I build up the L184 tore it down moved it a couple of times and yet not a sinlge piece went missing! So I was able to resurrect the almighty beast of light! So I'll show you some photo's.
In the last photo you can see the two boards that will be mouted on the wall. That will give me about 2,5 meters workspace for my trays to develop my photo's in. Above that I will put two shelfs to put my beakers, funnels and bottle for chemicals.
Tomorrow I am going to Doesburg. In Doesburg there will be an international antique photography fair which is held every year. I will post some video's and photo's for an impression of the day. I am not looking for something special. Just some magicubes and some filters for my lenses
Since the beginning of august I have access to a darkroom. Since then I am busy making it light tight and painting stuff black. The room is white and I leave it as such. Just where the enlarger will be located I will paint the wall or part of the wall black to prevent reflections. Next week en the 30th of august I will move all my darkroom stuff into my darkroom. I just need to buy 2 to 3 tables and a closet so I can put my stuff somewhere. When that is completed I will put some boards on the wet side so I can put my baekers, funnels and such within reach. My darkroom up to this point:
This is the start of my new blog. It is the continuation of darkroomninja.blogspot.com. I decided to move over to weebly because of the ease of use. Here I will record al my adventures within the realm of analogue photography. I'll show photo's, video's and I'll show the thing I am discovering or that are demanding my interest. Like my new darkroom that I am currently moving in to. So for starters a photo:
