We have made it to the fifth edition of the Red Light District. In much the same vein as our first featured Darkroom, Dave has turned an outdoor shed into a darkroom. He even sees some of the same issues Nate does – though whether he uses a bucket to move water around was unfortunately not addressed.
What started off as a 8 x 6 shed was transformed into a fully functional darkroom, complete with home-made workbenches. It doesn’t have a water supply (that’s what kitchens are for) and electricity is piped in by using a cable through a floor hatch (lightproofed of course – see image) which goes into the kitchen. When not in use the cable can be pushed through the hatch. I also made some inner doors for double light blocking power!
Thanks Dave! These shed darkrooms sure seem to be gaining popularity. Have you built a darkroom in your backyard? Be sure to send photos with information about your setup to firstname.lastname@example.org!
