(rules to work by)
Knock on the darkroom doors when going in/out to warn people on the
other side of the door.
Always use a tray to take wet prints from the darkroom to the squeegee
area, then return the tray to the darkroom.
Keep dry areas DRY- do not bring wet prints, trays, etc. near the enlarger
stations or paper cutters.
Dry your prints properly. RC paper 5x7in or larger can be put through
the drier. Fiber-based paper and RC paper smaller than 5x7in go on the
drying screens under the large table.
NEVER lift the negative stage while the enlarger light is on-the light
will spill into the darkroom and damage other students' paper.
Don't mix-up the tongs. If one drops into the chemistry, please rinse
it off and put it back on the edge of the tray.
DON'T LEAVE PRINTS OR TEST STRIPS IN THE WASH! If you don't want them,
throw them out. If you want them, take them out after 5 minutes on rinsing
and properly dry them.
DON'T EAT IN THE DARKROOM. It is not safe or sanitary. The chemicals
we use are health hazardous. ALWAYS wash your hands before you eat when
you've been using the chemicals!
Clean up after yourself. Don't leave your messes and trash for the next
person...you wouldn't appreciate a mess a either.
If something is broken, missing, leaking, or seems potentially urgent
to fix, tell a teacher or lab monitor.
with the glass plates. They break easily. They are sharp when they break.
They'll cut you. It'll hurt...and you will bleed.
