Darkroom Cookbook 2ND Edition

by

Darkroom Cookbook 2ND Edition Cover

 

Staff Pick

How wonderful it is to spend a dreamy afternoon in a darkroom, locked away from the world and surrounded by your photos and the smell of D-76. You don't need to be a chemist to understand this book, but a basic knowledge of chemistry is indeed helpful. Use The Darkroom Cookbook to create your own "cookbook" of darkroom recipes, suited for your specific printing needs. Angell writes at length about developers for film and paper, stop baths, toners, and other tricks of the alchemical darkroom trade.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written in easy-to-understand language, The Darkroom Cookbook is the one source every photographer needs for the recipes for both common and rare photographic formulas. This book shares tried-and-true techniques for the silver-based process and provides the keys to unlocking creativity through the mastery of the 'ingredients' of photography — namely the chemicals used to develop, fix, stop and tone.

The Darkroom Cookbook, 2nd Edition offers 170 photographic formulas, 20 of which are new to this edition, that cover film developing, paper developing, toners, stop baths, fixers, negative reductions, print reductions, negative intensifiers, paper intensifiers, and more. New information has been added on pyro developer, amidol developer, monobaths, pushing film, and low contrast development. Sections on safety and darkroom planning, as well as a listing of chemical suppliers, complete this book. The comb binding allows for easy darkroom use.

*Recipes for 170 photographic formulas and their specific uses, including 20 new ones
