Description

Product Description

The Darkroom Handbook is a complete illustrated manual of skills, equally useful to the beginner who has never processed film but wants to try and to the experienced amateur or professional who is already highly proficient in darkroom procedures. From the most basic techniques (setting up a darkroom, loading film in a developing tank, handling chemicals) to the most complicated (making dye transfer prints, solarization, pointillism effects), it explains everything, step by step, with an abundance of photographs, drawings, and charts that no other book can match. Written by one of the world''s foremost photographic educators and produced by the editorial team responsible for such best-selling guides as The Photographer''s Handbook and The Step-by-Step Guide to Photography, this book has been carefully organized to lead the novice readily into progressively more interesting and sophisticated procedures. For the first time in any darkroom book, a major emphasis has been placed on color -- not only basic processing and printing, but also advanced methods of handling color creatively.

Comprehensive, wonderfully clear, handsomely produced and printed, The Darkroom Handbook is an essential part of every photographer''s library.

I am a photography nut and took a darkroom class at my local university. Got this book used and found some good things in it but most of it is way over my head. If you just want to do some basics, even some intermediate stuff like Stand Development, I would say stick with YouTube and save some money even if you can get it for the cheap used price.

This is the book for someone serious about setting up a darkroom and starting to develop and print either B&W or color film, negative or transparency. In addition, a wide range of printing techniques and specialty methods are discussed and described, as well.

Darkroom handbook reference is fine
Reviewed in the United States on October 6, 2013
Haven''t done darkroom work since the 70''s.
Decided to resume printing photos and thought
it a good idea to get a reference book.
I can''t remember everything!
Glad to have it. Easily searchable, comprehensive and
not too wordy. A good reference book.
