Darkroom Meeting October 20th, 2009

Agenda

Making the darkroom dark

Review of the plan listed on the wiki, get folks to take ownership, order of when things to do, set hard dates.

current plan is to use blackout curtains, and build in a fan which will vent out into greater 2169 for now, and then we hope someone can help us pipe it somewhere.

Fudns

Mitch and Jeffrey are willing to help with our money matters.

Equipment acquisition and organization

Digital printer

there's been talk of this digital printer, which I suspect will be settled in the standard do-ocratic (or not-do-ocratic) manner, but which may merit some meatspace discussion.

Film scanner

Several poorer photographers have been lusting after a film scanner. We've found some options in the $400-600 range. We'll also likely cast about for donations. I think that a flatbed scanner in good shape that works with something other than Windows would be useful.

Color printing!

We have a color enlarger, but can't actually print color without print development equipment. In theory we can do this is baths like BW printing, but I think it's pretty finicky. I'll post this in a separate thread on the list.

Darkroom items and floor plan

Table and filing cabinet dimensions should get documented somewhere.

I would like to digitize the dorkroom floorplan and get that on the wiki, for posterity.

Other projects?

there's been talk of Xrays and pinhole cameras and polaroids and making our own film. Sometime soon I'd like to see some photography-themed workshops. Incidentally, is there a name for our group? I have been using Darkroom crew, Dorkroom crew, and Darkbridge interchangeably (in the latter case, "greater 2169" is referred to as "Noiseroom").
