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 /
Reservations are required to use our darkroom, and payment is due at registration. You can book a single session or multiple sessions at once. The cost for members is $10 an hour (and for non-members, it’s $20 an hour). 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). If you’re interested in scheduling a time other than the options provided, please call us to set an appointment.
