I have a little bit of light coming in from the bottom of the door but the sides and top look pretty good except for a small crack at the top left corner.

I agree with you, Tony! I want it DARK in my darkroom...otherwise wouldn't it be a sorta-darkroom??? Or a mostly-darkroom???TPPhotog said:Daft as it sounds the more natural light I can keep out of a darkroom, the easier I can see using the safelight. I find when there are even small leaks the room doesn't seem as evenly illuminated by the safelight.
This should be amended by exposing the paper first so it will develop to a light grey and then set it out with the coins on it. This will bump the paper over its threshold level and give a realistic test of the actual printing conditions. Any fogging will show a darker grey outline of the coins.Dave Wooten said:Put a sheet of photo paper face up in your darkroom and place some coins on the paper. After five or so minutes develope the paper.
Charles Webb said:Each to his own, but I will guarantee that if you can see anything at all in a darkroom after ten minutes with the lights off,
that your materials will be fogging and your quality will not be what it could be!
