Learn all aspects of a traditional darkroom photography workflow in this 4th edition of author Steve Anchell's The Darkroom Cookbook in paperback from Focal Press. This book is packed with techniques for silver-based processing, as well as "recipes" for darkroom experiments and invaluable information on developers, push-processing, reversal processing, enlarging negatives, pyro formulas, printing, and toning prints. The volume also offers advice on different topics, including where to procure equipment and how to setup your darkroom in a safe working space.
Key features of this revised edition of the text include over 200 step-by-step or do-it-yourself formulas, in addition to tips for mastering the "ingredients" of black-and-white photography processing--namely, the chemicals used to develop, stop, fix, and tone. You'll also find special technique contributions and stunning black-and-white imagery from professionals, including Bruce Barnbaum, Tim Rudman, John Sexton, and others.
