Printing Drying

what all do i need to develop my own pictures?

i want to know how much it would cost to develop my own pictures, but not by a printer, instead in one of those dark rooms. what kind of camera do i need and how much would everything i need cost?

A darkroom is used to develop film into negatives and photographic prints out of those negs.

You'd need a film camera and NOT a digital. You'd need a film processing cannister that you load the film in, IN the darkroom and the developer chemical to put in it that changes the latent image on the film into a negative. And then more chemicals to stop the developing process and another one to "fix" the image, to make it permanent and no longer light sensitive.

Now you need the equipment and chemistry to enlarge the image, and make prints. An enlarger is required, unless you would be happy with tiny prints the size of the negative. (see the avatar image above your name? Roughly twice that size.) The next step involves, either, trays of chemicals to take the enlarged laten image on the paper through the same steps as the film negatives. You need to develop the latent image, stop the process, fix the image, rinse the print and then dry it, OR, you can buy a machine that does it for you. You just keep it filled with fresh chemicals as you use it.

Add to that the various peripheral equipment and tools, like a save light, timer, jeweler's loupe, tongs, sticks, ventelation fan for the darkroom, print dryer, clips and on and on.

How much depends on the qualtiy of the equipment and where you get it. I got by for a long time using a very cheap enlarger I got at a flea market and cheap plastic trays and other tools. At the time, I only shot black and white film, so my chemistry was pretty simple.

I suggest you do a lot of research about what a darkroom should have, including research on types and brands of equipment you need. When you have a good idea of what you need, and a good knowledge of the process, THEN you can look around for a good source. You can get everything you want at a full service camera store. But, of course, for new equipment, they will charge you a full price. However, some of them take trade-ins from photographers who upgrade to better equipment. Ask at the camera store if they have any used enlargers, cameras, print dryers and whatever.

You can get some equipment, still cheaper, by buying directly from whoever is selling it. Classified ads, Craig's list, and swap meets can be a good source. But you really need to have a good idea of what kinds of deals are really good. Again, that research you do is critical.

I can also suggest you find a film photography class at your local community college or adult education program. There, you can get some hands on time in their darkroom, to better prepare you for setting up your own.

Good Luck.
