First Post [October 9th, 2006 | 10.26]

Hi everyone.
This is my first post in DarkRoom_Tips community.
Thanks for accepting me. Now it's time to introduce myself.

My name is Edgar Keats, I'm 25 and I'm from Lisbon, Portugal.
I am a music producer and I found photography some years ago, now I want to explore this fantastic world and evolve, I believe it's the knowledge and the experience that make our instincts go in an accurate mode, to create more and better.

My GearCollapse )

and one of my latest photoshereCollapse )

Thank you.

This community seems to be pretty lonely, but i'm not sure if anyone reads it anymore. I do have a question: i just bought a complete color darkroom set for $75 (i know what a deal!) but i'm wondering if i use black and white paper and negatives would i be able to make black and white photos?

[April 3rd, 2006 | 22.18]

helloo i've been working with darkroom black and white photography for a while now and i'm looking for constructive criticism, what i can do better and what you like. i'm going into color this summer so i'd like to know what i should maybe start doing to make my photos more interesting and better, if anything. i'm sorry these are all photos of photos..i really did my best to adjust them to what they actually look like. i don't have a scanner :( but i promise they look better in person so just keep that in mind. thank you!

OH NO! LET'S GET SOME NEW POSTS! [March 22nd, 2006 | 11.58]

hi everyone, i'm posting some photos that i took a few weeks ago.
A friend and i went on a photo adventure, which i suggest to everyone go anywhere and it's always a hoot.

sorry i couldn't get my lj-cut to work so i'll post more later.
any tips on those lj-cuts let me know.
also please feel free to comment on my photos, because lately i've been so pissed at communities that are always like
"So good", "looks great" all the time to photos that aren't even worth the comments they get.
sorry about that rant.

It's like buses.... you wait for ages for one post and then.... [February 27th, 2006 | 20.43]

....loads turn up at onceCollapse )

Does this count as photo-whoring? Any feedback is welcome. Most of the Pentax pictures are at least 2 years old, the Bronica ones are more recent. I tend to go to NY as often as finances allow :o)

[February 27th, 2006 | 13.58]

Taken this weekend. Minimal photoshopping, if you were wondering, only to make it black and white.


[February 25th, 2006 | 22.03]

Random Central Park Bench Shot!Collapse )

Taken with a Zenza Bronica ETRSi, 50mm f2.8 lens on Fuji Provia 400.

[February 22nd, 2006 | 22.03]

check this out. i know it's not the best thing in the world, but come on doods.


i want to know your opinion [February 11th, 2006 | 02.03]

I was wondering what you guys thought about the new trend in using polaroids? I think it's kinda cool, but i also think that alot of people are using them and making shitty photographs, wait scratch that, snap shots. And it's cool if you want to use a newer polaroid, but i prefer my polaroid landcamera 220 from the 60's. I know sometimes i sound like a snob when i talk about photography, but really think that alot of people think that they are photographers when they know nothing of the history or even how to work in a darkroom or any of the technicalities of it. Ok thanks for letting me rant haha.

hi [January 28th, 2006 | 10.01]

-Name.. Andrea Kate
- Age.. 17
- Location.. Maryland
- What cameras do you have?..
Olympus 0M1, Lomo lubitel, Holga, Polaroid One Step, Nikon Coolpix5200..
many others that are old and not for use..

darkroom tip: use plain old brown scotch tape and tape around the edge of your negative in the negative carrier as desired. creates a bubbly effect. see under cut for results..

My friend that I'm always in the darkroom with found out something really helpful.
Stick some cellophane underneath the lens of the enlarger to make the image softer.
