One day, many moons and suns ago, I showed up to the studio to shoot headshots for an editor at AOL. I brought my 5D Mk II and two lenses along, but forgot to put something very critical into my camera bag. When doing test shots, I saw something horrifying come up in my images—dust.

Here are a couple of items to use—and how to use them—to ensure that my mistake never happens to you.

In these digital times, most photographers have migrated away from the traditional wet darkroom process, in favor of the DSLR and the inkjet printer.

Although black-and-white papers are vulnerable to daylight until "fixed," a certain amount of "safe" light is allowed in the darkroom.

Proper ventilation is essential in a darkroom. Chemicals, especially fixer (hypo) and acetic acid (stop bath), give off strong fumes that can be disturbing, can aggravate respiratory ailments and are extremely unhealthy in a non-ventilated space.

It is important to mention at this point that print quality is more a factor of the negative than it is of the equipment used to print. Remember what Ansel Adams said: “The negative is the score. The print is the performance.” That says it all. It is very difficult to get a satisfactory print from a bad negative.

Show me a business without a copy machine and I'll show you a seven-year-old kid with a lemonade stand. And despite the prediction that computers will do away with the need for paper copies, the opposite seems to be overwhelmingly true. That being the case, Konica Minolta has introduced a new lineup of laser printers designed to address a variety of office-based needs.
