Photo Print in the Darkroom

I am glad I got the opportunity to try Darkroom Print although I am not a big fan of the chemical smell back then.
While cleaning up my photo prints and finding a huge folio bag, I didn’t open it for a long time.

I realize I have a lot of Darkroom prints I did back in 2008 and 2009.
Then I look thought back at my first Youtube account, I did post a video way back in Sept 2009 where I’m in the Uni’s Darkroom doing some prints.

In the Uni’s Photo Darkroom in 2009

While watching back the video, suddenly I can feel back all the senses. The sound of the water flow, the smell of the chemical and the safelight (red light). I did buy an enlarger back to Malaysia from Australia but too bad the component is somewhere around my bedroom. When I can’t get any chemical and photo paper around, that’s where the end game of Darkroom for me.

Here are the scanned darkroom print :

All Photo paper developed with Ilford Satin Photo Paper, one of the lowest grade (cheapest one available).

You can see a lot of small dark spot because it’s been a while all the photo kept warm inside my huge folio bag that I didn’t open for a very long time.

Do you have the opportunity to Darkroom Print? Would love to hear your stories too.
