Today I began working on a 'dark box' or portable darkroom, whichever you prefer, to begin doing tintypes on the road with Imaginem Studios. In the process of figuring out how to lighten our load for city travel, sans car, and not break the bank, we'd come up with a solution! Turn an old Nikon 300mm lens case into our mobile lab. After a few designs, we'd come up with something cost effective, lightweight, and highly mobile. Now, to build it. Below are some of the images from todays build, mostly getting the plexi cut for the base, cleaning, and affixing the foam.
Next we'll add the deep-red acrylic to the top and add our modified changing bag! We'll be mobile in no time!
