Nowadays it takes some minutes to print photos, it is not a problem, but previously pictures development was a laborious occupation. Today we’ll the whole printing process of the USSR times.
Take a photographic enlarger.
Get all constituents.
And assemble them.
All details are so old, it is a miracle that they still work.
Put a picture.
If an old lamp stops burning, civilize it with a modern light.
Looks good, let’s see how it works.
Unfortunately it didn’t help and the light is still dim. Experiment again. Maybe an electric torch with a reflector will do?
The result is perfect, but it is very uncomfortable to hold it all the time.
It is time to put a film. Choose the necessery frame ( photoshop didn’t exist that time) and put a small frosted piece of glass in a special pocket under the film.
A decayed sealant may be replaced by glamorous pink tissues.
Guess what is this.
Civilization is our everything!
It is a lamp! And not simple: there are 3 working modes. №1.
So now we have the light and can return to photos. Moreover our photographic paper is practically new.
The place for a young photographer is in a bathroom, of course.
Containers with a developer and a fixer.
The work with photographic paper and films is possible only by red light.
Thread the film, put a piece of red glass opposite the lens of the photographic enlarger, switch it on and choose a position of the paper.
The most important moment. Put the glass away and count to 10.
Put a lid on the lens, take the paper and the developer.
A picture appeared. Wait for its definition. It is important not to overexpose, or the picture would be too dark. Now to the fixer.
Wait again for a little, then rinse the picture in water and hang to dry.
While water trickles down from the photo, use a glazing machine.
Put the photo on the glass and flat it with a roller.
Return the glass to its place, cover it with a rag, switch on the device and go to take coffee. Come back and see that the photo is ready.
