Darkroom Gallery Info

Mon Jun 11, 2012, 3:17 PM

While the majority of Photography galleries on dA are subject-based, Darkroom is technique-based. Photographs using Darkroom techniques are generally accepted in the other photography galleries too, but if you wish to categorise your Darkroom photography submission based on how it was created, then Photography > Darkroom is here to allow you to do that.


Darkroom


Photographs which have been physically developed and/or printed using traditional and alternative film darkroom techniques, or digitally processed with the use of computer software to emulate traditional and alternative film darkroom techniques. This is a technique-based gallery and is not for photographs which have simply been taken in a room which is dark! 

 

Darkroom Digital

Photographs which have been digitally processed or edited with the use of computer software to emulate traditional and alternative film darkroom techniques.

 

Darkroom > Digital > Digital Overlays

Digital photographs created by layering two or more images (including but not limited to texture and colour layers) to create a final image, mimicking the effect of exposing photographic paper to two or more negatives and/or filters during printing. This differs from photomanipulations, where elements of numerous images are separately extracted and combined to make a final image.

Darkroom > Digital > HDR

Photographs created using digital techniques to allow a greater dynamic range between the darkest and lightest areas of the image. This is generally done by combining a number of images with different exposures in digital editing software to compile a finished image with a greater range of intensity than is found in one single photograph.

Darkroom > Digital > Miscellaneous Processes

Digital photographs which have undergone software-based editing to emulate alternative and/or complex chemical developing and printing techniques. This can include, but is not limited to, split-toning, colour tinting, extensive burning and dodging, as well as any other digital darkroom processing techniques not included in other digital darkroom categories.

Darkroom > Traditional

Scans of photographic prints and negatives where the images have been physically developed and/or printed using traditional and alternative film darkroom techniques. This gallery is not for digitally created or edited images.

 

Darkroom > Traditional > Alternative Processes

Photographic images which have been printed on paper or other surfaces using alternative, historical or non-traditional chemical processes. This can include, but is not limited to cyanotypes, lithprints, bromoils, carbon prints, gum bichromate prints, liquid emulsion and wetplate. It can also include multi-process developing and printing methods like chemical tinting and split-toning.

Darkroom > Traditional > Instant Film

Images shot on film which contains all the chemicals needed for developing and fixing the photograph, for example Polaroid film. This can also include emulsions and lifts from instant film. This gallery is not for images which have had Polaroid-style filters or frames added during digital processing.

Darkroom > Traditional > Traditional Processes

Images which have been developed and/or printed using film and/or photographic paper containing light-sensitive chemicals, specifically silver halides, by way of traditional darkroom techniques. This includes photograms, photographs produced using pin-hole cameras with traditional silver film and photographic paper, and traditionally printed overlays were photographic paper is exposed to two or more negatives and/or filters during printing.

This journal is intended to be a source of information so while you're welcome to post comments asking questions about the Darkroom gallery, please do not use this as a space to debate the necessity for the existence of a Darkroom category on dA, what you feel constitutes 'real' photography, film vs digital or other issues of personal perception or opinion. Thanks!
