Flash, Bang, Wallop !

By chase
Another from my 'darkroom' collection.
I do like the effect of the safelight, everything looks so different when working in darkroom conditions, it takes a while for your eyes to get used to it.
I like all the paraphernalia in this one, lots of different shapes and colours.

Taken in the light you see here and a little daylight leakage from closed curtains camera left.
An HDR image, 3 frames 1 stop apart, combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop with a straighten up crop and a levels adjustment.

Thanks for dropping by.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

For some unknown (?) reason, I can see John (Dudler) as the photographer...Tongue

Beautiful retro-image with fine 35mm Kodak and accompanying developing gear, great lighting too appropriate for the period!

A peek into the darkroom - something I have never experienced and feel that a real photographer
has some of that knowledge.

This has got me hankering over my, now gone, darkroom. Developing film was my fave thing ever.

Another fine setup from the days of film and processing, Janet, like the glow from the safelight 👍 I remember well feeding the film onto a spool like that! 😃
