Darkroom Diary # 40 - DIY Analog Handmade Silver Gelatin Emulsions
Starting on November 1st, we are kicking off a brand new series in the Darkroom Underground where we will be walking you through everything you need to know to make a variety of different handmade silver gelatin-based emulsions.
You will learn to make everything from paper negatives, to silver chloride contact printing papers, and enlarging speed printing papers, dry plates, and even film, both roll and large format sheets!
For example, if you like to capture on digital or scan your film and ultimately make digital negatives, but you still want to make true artisan handmade prints, then this new DIY Handmade Analogy Photography Series in the Darkroom Underground will give you everything you need to know.
If you want to use a total analog workflow like me, then I believe this is the ultimate artisan expression because we can make different emulsions for our negatives and prints and fine tune all the variables to meet our creative intentions.
Enjoy this video today and I look forward to connect with you inside the Darkroom Underground and teaching you how to make this silver gelatin emulsions.

This website's a large trove on analog photography information. I found Tim's website 8 years ago when I wanted to learn how to scan negatives so I can make digital prints. I wasn’t quite familiar with negative scanning at the time, so firing off a few emails to Tim were necessary. Surprisingly, his responses were almost immediately. His website piqued my interest and lead to developing my first roll of Kodak Tmax 100. Of course, the next logical step, is to make prints from your negatives, again I found Tim’s site to have the information I needed. And again, more emails were fired off.
Over the years, my desire to improve and understand the black and white process, has kept me coming back. I've been able to progress from medium format film to 4x5 without missing a step. The foundation, Tim’s able to provide with his website and personal coaching, enables me to go into the darkroom with confidence and make my prints. In the darkroom the noise washes away and my focus is on finding the right way to print from the negative. Sometimes it takes hours and from time to time it takes days. It's about practice, practice, practice!
I'm looking forward to learning how to make my own paper emulsion, which again, Tim will walk me step by step. Tim makes it easy; his process works and the best part he's always available.
