    Well, just like your photoshop software which include burning and doging function if you realise. Burning is using of light artistically to increase exposure to a certain area of the photo to increase the intensity of the tone. It will be useful if for example there are unwanted elements in your picture which you don't want your audience to pay attention to. Dodgeing is basically the reverse of burning. You block off some light to make certain area brighter. Burning and dodging can really do wonders to some very bad negatives. Especially if the print is very flat and low contrasty.

    You will need an enclose area. So as long as there is not light leak, the only thing you would probably need is an enlarger, an easer, some chemicals, trays and containers. You don't even need redlight if your area is fairly small and easy to get around with. Somthings you just have to make do with and use your creativity. So it's not really nessary to be expensive for the start.

    Hmm.. I don't have a darkroom to demonstare unless you can find one. Sadly I have access to a private lab but I won't be able to bring you in. It will be good if you can find and book any labs in community centres or Safra club then I can show you how.

    Darkroom Techniques is not something you'll be able to learn within 1 or 2 lessons.

    Go take a B&W Darkroom course.

    There are B&W courses organize by PSS, Safra, Photo Art etc.

    Well, agreed with this point. Well I took about 2 years of full time course to perfect just the foundation Black and White. I did advance darkroom printing only at my final years. There simply too many things in the art of printing alone. It require great patience, sensitivity and understanding of technical and science. If you are just learning for joy, take your time pal.
