    This is a print from my first time in a darkroom. I started building a darkroom about a month ago when I got an enlarger for free at a yard sale. I've realized that darkroom printing is an entire artistic world in and of itself and I'm really excited to learn more and get better at it.

    Out of curiosity, what made you interested in darkroom printing?

      I legitimately had the exact same thought, Oskar Schuster came to mind immediately after seeing the picture.

        Thanks for putting him on my radar. I wasn't familiar with him and his stuff is great!

      I've been shooting analog photography on and off for while now. About 5 years ago I started developing at home and ever since then I've wanted to try printing as well.

      I've only had my dark room for a few weeks and I can already tell you that I'm never going back. The great thing about a dark room is that its a way to edit your photos. Now instead of scanning negatives then editing them digitally, I can create prints that look the way I want them to and scan those instead.

      I've only scratched the surface of what can be done in the darkroom and I'm really excited to learn more and grow my technique!

    I really like this! The texture of the photo is magnificent. It reminds of a piano someone had dragged out into the middle of Joshua Tree National Park that we used to go party at in the 80s. I agree with kfwyre that it would make good cover art for a solo piano album. I look forward to seeing more of your art.

      Thanks. This piano has been sitting out on the street of the "downtown" area for over a year now. I couldn't resist going and taking a few shots.
