DARKROOM BASICS by Frances Schultz
Increased sales in darkroom equipment, especially in the USA and Canada, testify that darkroom photography is currently enjoying a renaissance. Present books on the subject are text-heavy and highly technical and scientific - Darkroom Basics, in contrast, is a jargon-free, easy-to-follow and comprehensive guide to all the challenges of the darkroom. Packed with clear diagrams and specially commissioned photographs, it takes the reader step by step through everything he/she needs to know to print successfully. 'Troubleshooting' spreads alert the reader to the pifalls to avoid, and the Afterwork chapter advises on rescue remedies for those times when things don't go quite to plan.
