Darkroom Night @ Market Street Studios

 

Join us on April 11th for film processing and printing at the Market Street Studios – a relatively new darkroom facility in Ballard, open to the public.

We'll process a couple rolls of film, make a contact sheet or two, and print some negatives. Let me know if you'd like to bring an exposed roll to process (black and white).

This should be a fun and educational event for all of us, hosted by Abby Ipanbutr.  Let's meet at 6:15 at the Kiss Cafe, then we'll walk next door to the Market Street Studios at 6:30 or so.

Looking forward to seeing you guys there.

This is a limited event, but if there's enough interest, we'll do more. Please let me know if you wanted to go, but space was not available to RSVP.

    Looks like it's wait-listed, but want to register my interest in this kind of event.

      Curt this is open to everyone. Please ignore the Meetup wait list on this as I can't seem to disable it for this event.

    Levi- I am not familiar with either Arista or Tetanal E-6 kits, but the fact that Kodak still has an E-6 kit for the home user, I would lean towards that. When I processed my own Ektachrome with the Kodak kit, it was very easy, and the results were as good as from a commercial lab. Maybe try both and see what the results look like, but remember....Kodak invented Ektachrome and it's original processing, so I feel they have an edge over anything else that's available. See you tonight.

    Bill - there is still available Arista Rapid E6 Slide Developing Kit which i heard works fine. Never tried before, but I have over 100+ rolls of ektachrome i want to use for my works.

    Levi- I just found out that Kodak still DOES make a singlu-use chemistry kit for processing E-6. Go to Kodak's professional division website, click on "Product Information", then "Chemicals", then "Process E-6".

    Levi- When you say processing slide film, I assume you mean E-6 process for color reversal films, yes? Years ago (1960's-70's), Kodak sold a home developing kit for color reversal films (E-2, E-3). It was great! I remember processing Ektachrome film in our basement when I was in Jr. High School. That hasn't been available for years, but there are still E-6 kits available for home hobbyists. Professional E-6 processing uses a 6 bath process. TETENAL makes a 3 bath processing kit called Colortec E-6, but I would be leary of any process that uses a short cut version. We can talk more about this tonight.

    Hi everyone! Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow night! If you are bringing a roll to develop let me know so I can make sure there is enough materials to mix developer. Also, preloaded is better, but there are some tanks available to load it there. If you could also do a bit of research on the developing time for the film type that would also be helpful. And if you're feeling it, bring some snacks to share :)
    See you tomorrow!
    Abby

    No more waiting list! Everyone feel free to attend. We can't guarantee we'll all fit in the darkroom for each processing, but there is an adjacent room we can mingle in too. Bring an exposed roll of 35 or 120 if you have it. Note - this is not a guaranteed process, so if you care tons about the content of your roll, you may wait to see what the others come out like. I think we could process a few rolls in the time we have.

    I haven't processed in 20 years, but I'd like to get back into it. I'll be bringing a roll or two. Thanks for putting this night together.

    As I've mentioned in previous posts, I've got over 40 years B&W darkroom experience, all formats, so I will be more than happy to share some tips and techniques with those who attend. Looking forward to it!
