Just printing Since I write this post while printing, I discovered a big advantage of typewriters in darkrooms. You dont have to turn them off while you make prints. No annoying status light that would fog your prints, and wakeup from standby is instant. Every darkroom should have a typewriter. I agree you could gaffer all the lights on a laptop (like I did with my radio down here, you have to have a radio or otherwise you go mad in a darkroom), but that looks ugly (unless it fits to your laptop like it does to my 70s radio) and sooner or later it will fall down and fog your prints (again). But more about prints. I made the switch to the bigger Durst enlarger, but that means I also have to adjust my color analyser to the news one. As I type this, I just have the first real test print in the washer. Lets hope it looks good.post. More will follow shortly. There are many shots on this film I would like to print. But now I have to quit, I'm out of water. greetings from the darkroom Markus
