EQUIPMENT AND CHEMISTRY /
Our fully equipped and well-maintained community darkroom is one of our best-kept secrets here at The Light Factory. Our space has six enlargers, two of which have the capacity for enlarging up to a 4×5 negative. We also have a full-size film-processing sink with tanks and reels for 35mm and 120mm film, as well as the tanks and the capacity to process 4×5 and 8×10 sheet film. While we primarily use Sprint Systems chemistry for film processing and printing, we also have various alternative developers and toners available.
COST AND SCHEDULING /
To use our our darkroom, you need two things: a TLF membership and a reservation. The cost for members is $10 an hour, with payment due at registration. The hourly charge covers the cost of chemistry and space, but you’ll need to supply your own paper. The darkroom is open from noon to 5:30 pm Wednesday though Saturday (with the exception of noon to 1:30 pm on Tuesdays), and you can book a single session or multiple sessions at once. If you’re interested in scheduling a time other than the options provided, please call us to set an appointment.
