Kind of an emergency:

t’s Keight here, desperately asking anyone with any darkroom experience to considering taking over my place in the developing team. I’ve run into a lot of difficulty this week, and I feel that if I continue trying to hold myself up to developing these photos etc, our project will suffer.

Suggestions are appreciated from everyone. I was a little too ambitious coming back to school so soon and taking on so much work and my body and school work are both suffering greatly.

Thank you all in advance,

Keight-development team

    I have a little bit of darkroom experience, but I don’t know specifics off the top of my head (such as the order of chemicals, and for how long the image must be submerged in each). I can do it if there is absolutely no one else who feels able.

    Do we need to actually develop the photos? I thought that it is more like in the prototype center where you come, give you stuff and they do all the work for you.

    Do they have someone in that dark room to ask if we need to develop the photos all by ourselves?
    Dayna I can join you if that would not be too many ppl. I do not have dark room experience at all but my father had a great deal of it I’ll ask him if I have a chance and do some research on the topic…

    Okay, where we stand right now, there is a $30 fee to get a card to get into the darkroom, so preferably the less people the better, and as for the specifics of developing I’m sure you can ask someone in the photography area. Usually pretty simple. a couple minutes in this, a couple in that. We always had the numbers posted in our darkroom so you didnt have to try and remember.

    ok then two ppl should be enough since Jina is up two developing from the beginning and she has some experience. If I find some useful resources on the topic I’ll post it here…

    The actual developing isn’t super super onerous (though it might take half a day), if you can get all of the sheets into a doubled over black plastic envelope (the kind paper comes in — don’t trust a single envelope). OCAD almost certainly has an automated stop/fix/wash maching which makes life a lot easier.

    Keight, good to back away early if you know you can’t do it. Maybe you can be our back-up person.

    I’ll go to the fourth floor on thursday after class (2:30) and find someone to talk to about developing.

    Keight, will you still be able to pick up the photographic paper (b&w, 16×20) for us to cut and load on friday?

  8.   Kaitlin MacLean Says:

    Reid is picking up the paper for us, and was wondering about running some tests and developing some test ones.

    Okay, I think we’ve got things sorted out. Thank you Keight for telling us soon enough to properly deal with it.
