“Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications,
offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution.”
~ Ansel Adams

The Darkroom Darkroom of Yesteryear
My passion for the darkroom was set in high school. I absolutely love working in a darkroom and spent hours and hours in there. When I wasn’t in my high school darkroom, I was pleading with the local Naval Base to let me work in theirs. The smell, the process, and the image revealing. It was like opening a gift every time. Now the darkroom has been absorbed by the digital world. Photoshop and software like it has taken over for what I remember as being a complete joy. I miss the darkroom.
