hi there...whats the minimum area you need for a darkroom....am trying to create one at home....we have an outside terrace on the first floor leading out from our bedroom where we could create a custom made wooden garden shed type darkroom....so basically id have a table with an enlarger and another table for the developing/fix/wash trays etc.....whats the very minimum?
? talk to me in metres Squared please!
I only did black and white, so this may not apply to you. I used one room (3m x 2m) for film development chores, another room (3m x 4m) for enlargers and printing, and an internal very small bathroom with no windows for extracting the film from the canisters and placing into the development tanks. You could use a closet for extracting the film, but you want to avoid dust. You also want to avoid dust in the enlarger area, if that's what you're doing. The only reason I needed the 3m x 2m room for film developing is because of the accessories I leave around - thermometers, boxes and bottles of chemicals, etc.
