Dark rooms still have an irresistible allure for most photographers. This particular room is completely dark, so that sensitive photographic materials, such as the film and paper can be processed. It’s argued that nobody is a proper photographer, until they’ve given the darkroom a try.

They’re found in most colleges, schools and the studios of professional photographers, where prints are still developed using traditional methods.

It’s almost like a church in the world of photography- the place where worshippers always used to gather, and where many still do. Consequently, it has a magical aura to it, particularly with that strange red light and the smell of chemicals.

What could be better than escaping to the darkroom, on a cold winter’s day?
