How To Build Darkroom For Photography

The Tank development. It is a plastic or metal container (jar-shaped, much like the portarullini a time) to the light-tight. Inside there is a spiral on which is wrapped the film to be developed (the one that we extract from the original film). The spirals of the tank are usually changed in height in order to adapt to the different formats, so always check not to have to do with a model “fixed”.

The tank is also equipped akusaraprosound, on the upper part, of two caps: a first light-tight and a second seal also of liquid. In this way you can add a reagent in the tank without risking to impress the film with light.

Stop for paper. It is a liquid whose function is to arrest the development of photography. Its use is necessary to save the fixing bath: if we’re going to throw away the chemical agent to fix, then worried about the arrest, would be useless. As for brands, talk to the most famous as Ilford or Tmax.

Fixing paper. It is the liquid used to fix the image on the paper. Ilford or Tmax.

Distilled water. You’ll use a lot together all’imbibente to rinse the photographs. Preferable to running water from the tap as devoid of limestone.

Wetting. It is used together with the water distilled and has the characteristic of reducing the surface tension of the droplets allowing the latter to “slip” away with extreme ease.

Inattinica bulb. It will be your only source of light as it does not impress the photographic film. To settle down far enough away from the work, do not go overboard with the wattage (15W are more than enough) .These lamps may be dark red or yellow / green.

Detector for films. A chemical agent in liquid form whose function is to develop the film revealing the image. They come in various brands and models, one more suitable to a particular film over another. This product also has a different yield depending on the degree of dilution. The more diluted the higher the “power balancer” will be able to expose more detail in shadows and highlights, reduces the contrast (which is good), the sharpness (greater separation between the tones of gray).

Enlarger. This is the most expensive component in absolute terms, but also the fundamental. The enlarger is a kind of projector which allows to “project” the negative onto the photographic paper at will by changing the size of the final print.
