Darkroom


We currently offer 8 enlargers, simple wet tray darkroom printing and b&w film development equipment.

Other services will not be available until the darkroom is complete later in 2017.

 

 

Please contact us for more information via our contacts page or email info@noirdarkroom.com


 

If you are interested using the darkroom, we are running workshops in creative photographic process that often require no darkroom at all. Check out our workshops page to find out more or book into one.

We can highly recommend Strange Neighbour in Fitzroy and Fox Darkroom in Kensington if you require a more advanced darkroom set up at this time.

Darkroom practice is now referred to as 'retro' by some film enthusiasts who shoot film purely to scan into the digital realm. This is reasonable considering scanning technologies are really amazing these days. We even offer a scanning station for those wanting to do so, but we also feel that there is nothing comparable to the act of darkroom printing and creating a physical photograph.

 

Darkroom printing can be magical and rewarding, offering a unique, personal and hands on experience. Watching silver react in a developing tray to create a photographic image is breathtaking and surprisingly easy to do. We want to share this experience with you and help make darkroom practice a normal and widely used medium again.

 

We offer a space that accommodates learning and experimentation. We encourage newcomers to come in and have a go and learn off the community of artists working together. We want our space to be used creatively and for people to push boundaries.

 

All of our enlargers are different, ranging in difficulty and quality to match our patrons needs. Our equipment and facility is generally aimed to accommodate beginner and intermediate skill levels but we do have professional enlargers available upon request.
