The Obscure Camera

This is the name of my photographic company, but it is a fitting name for a place to put down my thoughts on all things photographic.

  1. Better picture of the door

    Apparently, this software does not allow the author to edit blog posts. (Edit - I just noticed the pencil icon near the title of the post that let's me edit. I will do a better job in the future.) Here is a better picture of my rotating darkroom door. There were three of them on ebay when I bought it - two of them for $200 each and this one for $20. I had to drive an hour and a half each way to pick it up, it barely fit into my Toyota RAV-4, and I had a very interesting conversation with a large ...

  5. Newest Darkroom Fixture

    Today the counter top people brought me a slab of engineered quartz (a familiar brand name). It is 37" x 68" x 3 cm thick. It was a remnant in the stone yard, and I took delivery without any fabrication, so it has just the top polished surface, with four sawn edges.
