I would love to create a darkroom and process my own black and white photos at home. But I worry about the chemicals. Even with good ventilation, I would still need to dispose of the chemicals once used and I suspect they aren't exactly septic system or greywater safe.
There goes my dream of processing my own film...
... or does it?
I stumbled on this today, she's developing film with mint tea, vitamin C tablets and some baking soda. Pretty neat stuff.
So, is it possible to create a darkroom set up at home that doesn't rely on harsh chemicals?
