How to Set Up a Photography Darkroom : Dry Station Setup for a Darkroom


Hi, my name is Lanie McCormick. I’m a fine
art photographer in Austin, Texas. I’m here to show you how to set up a dark room on behalf
of Expert Village. In setting up your dry workstation in your darkroom, you want to
have a workbench set away from your wet area. You are going to house your enlarger here,
timer, your safe light and any other printing supplies that you’re going to need. You’re
also going to house your paper in this area. You’re definitely going to want one of these,
your dry station; it’s a perfect tool for context sheets. They’re easy to make. All
you need is a piece of glass or Plexiglass and a piece of foam board. You use these to
make your context sheets. It keeps the negatives flat, inexpensive and very important.
