I was wondering if there is a site that shows photos of portable darkrooms built by the memebers here?

Wondering if anyone has used a portable ice fishing tent or Portable Cabana Stripe Changing Room or portable privacy tolet and converted it into a drakroom?

Sometimes my work looks like it came out of a toilet

When I started, I made this miniature room with a door and the outside was covered with panneling. I actually had a kid think it was a porta potty. Bruce, do you remember it when you came and met me at Port Hudson a long time ago? The thing ended up blowing over in DeRidder Louisiana in a wind storm and Silver Nitrate was everywhere. That was the last time I used it.

I made mine from 1/4" plywood,with 2x2 lumber for the frame. 4'x 5' x 4 feet high with a peak roof, total 5 feet high to peak. Put a light bench work of 1/4" plywood along in side and end. Caulked all seams.Has a door with latch and a small 10" window covered with red or orange clear plastic that usualy needs to be covered over with a piece of white paper to cut down the light a bit. Added a few 2x2 runners underneath with angled ends for strength and ease in moving.

I put cargo tiedowns on the corners so it can be fastened down in the back of the pickup. It is one man loadable. Looks like a big doghouse. Works great.

I use an ice fishing hut. Works great if you dont have to worry about authenticity. Ty, i do remember your photobooth.

It does. You have to seal the stitching holes with liquid tape and the zippers let in some light. I made windows with rubylith.
I can set up or. Reak down in abou 10 minutes
