If you are using a film camera you will know by now that hand processing your film into a finished print takes place in a darkroom. It is in here that your roll film will turn into a set of masterpieces or under or overexposed shots. A darkroom should have basic ingredients for quality processing. It should be clean and well ventilated as anything that is spotted with dried chemicals could harm your photographic images. The darkroom should also be well organized and everything kept in its proper place. You also need enough safelights at adequate working distances. A darkroom's temperature should be in the 70°F to 75°F range. A well stocked darkroom should contain these items: sinks, graduates, photography paper, chemicals, waterproof aprons, towels, thermometers and timers along with film hangers, trays, reels and tanks.
