Most of the recent discussion have been about development of negatives/positives and scanning so I thought we should start a thread about traditional darkroom wet prints.

I'm a total noob on this so old bird please.....

tat is an enlarger. Most ppl buy it used from the Buy/Sell sections these days.
If you do not want to maintain a darkroom at home, then best is to join SAFRA monochrome / darkroom course at their Mt Faber clubhse. Therefore you can continue to use their facilities and chemicals for free provided yr club membership remains valid.

Apparently it's notes for dodging and burning. The final product
And some people still condemning the use of PhotoShop as a sin :bsmilie:

In my book dodging and burning digitally is fine because you still preserve the actual image, other than that... Well it's just me

Haha don't worry, nobody would understand the notes you write either. I look back at the notes I wrote during lecture last time and I myself don't understand what I write also

Just wondering, would it be advisable to just get a BW enlarger?
If im just doing BWs then i don't really need to meddle with the CMY.
Just doing split filters abit of D&B .

mmm but then again.. is price diff huge between BW and color enlarger?
