I’m kind of hoping to get a scanner with medium format film scanning capability for my birthday, which is only a month and a week away *hint, hint*. If I did get the scanner, I’d be able to do my own black and white film processing myself, which should save us some money. I’d also be able to shoot more with our various vintage cameras.
With that in mind, I’ve been doing some research on darkroom and photographic chemicals. I’ve found The Guerilla Darkroom, Become Your Own Lab For $49.38, and Coffee, Tea, Or Vitamin C: Kitchen Chemistry In The Darkroom to be potentially useful.
I’d be more likely to use a changing bag than a full-fledged darkroom, though. Either that or I’ll just have to handle the film before bed when it’s all dark. Troy already picked up a developing tank from a thrift store for me. It only cost him $4.99. When we went to a photography supply store this past weekend, we found that the actual price for the tank was $34.99. Jackpot! :)
Well, enough photogeekery for today. I’ll try to find some less boring topic to talk about in my next entry. Well, unless you find photogeekery stuff just as fascinating as I do, then I might just have to talk even more about it. No? Okay. I understand.
