Print What have you failed to do?: Print

    Grrrrr....I made reservations for this morning to use a darkroom in Jamaica Plain, nearly an hour from my house by subway. They open at nine, and I was going to print from nine to one, then take the subway back to catch a two o'clock appointment. Well, I get there at nine, and the place is locked. Figuring that they might be running late because of last night's snow, I took a walk around the neighborhood, and checked back at nine-thirty, then went home, not wanting to wait around any longer. I got home and called--turns out the woman on duty didn't make it in until ten--and by now, there's not much point in me going back, not to mention I don't want to spend another two hours on public transportation. I asked for free time to make up for my wasted trip, but she said she couldn't do that, and she'd ask the director.

    There's a darkroom closer by, in a new arts building, but I can't ever seem to get ahold of any of the photographers there to get information.

    All of this makes it damn frustrating when I'm trying to build a portfolio. I'm taking another class starting in January, but I can only use the darkroom there evenings and weekends, and their equipment is old and persnickity.

    That sucks. Where are you taking classes? My brother got a bunch of photo stuff for Christmas this year. If I were home longer, I would offer the use of our darkroom; though my stepfather's equiptment is probably pretty old and persnickity. It would probably take you just as long to get to Lowell on the commuter rail.

    Thanks Kaz--Lowell is probably just as much of a schlepp as JP. I really like that darkroom; not only does it have good equipment (and a CD player), but there are often other interesting photographers printing there, from hobbyists to serious professionals. It's a good way to meet folks and see what they are working on. I just got steamed today because I blew my morning going over there and back, and had no way of knowingthat they'd be open late.
