About 4-5 years ago my “Computer Lab” became my darkroom. :-)  Though my Commodore 64 is setup between my Beseler 23C and my Beseler 45MX enlargers. :-)  One of these days I have a darkroom project I want to do that involves using the Commodore 64.

Digital does have some advantages, but it also brings a lot of new challenges, when you’re doing “fine art” prints like I am.  The 10 prints I’ll be delivering to a Gallery on Saturday just about drove me crazy, due to strange tone issues with a couple prints.  Such issues would have been trivial with traditional darkroom printing.
