When…… Continue reading Street photography: 8th June to 25th June 2021

Street photography: 28th May to 5th June 2021

I have finally made my first darkroom prints

Yesterday (Tuesday 02-02-2021) I finally made my first ever darkroom prints. After having gathered all the necessary equipment, and procrastinated for three months, I pulled myself together and assembled my makeshift darkroom in the bathroom and got to work. The process wasn’t entirely smooth as I first had to figure out a solution to my…… Continue reading I have finally made my first darkroom prints
