whether its putting up a shelf, or building a computer desk, or one of those stands so you can put your computer on it and stand up to use the computer, or cutting + laying new bathroom tiles + grouting them etcetera - DIY is something we all like to do. therefore tjhis is the thread to show off your badass tool man skills and also to talk about what types of drill bits are the best for screwing into pine

Loads of yospos denizens have made themselves standing desks because they think standing up all day is a viable substitute for exercising.

digital photography is too easy, forgiving, and cost efficient for me, so i waste tons of time and money shooting film and developing it myself at home using hazardous chemicals. with the negatives, i make my own wet prints in a makeshift darkroom in my basement. i'm set up to do b&w prints, but my enlarger (a beseler 23c) has a color head on it (note the CMY knobs). so i could theoretically make my own color prints (known as the ra-4 process), but it involves extremely precise temperature management and i don't have the means to do that right now. the black and white process is much more forgiving. i can make prints from 35mm film up to the largest medium format size, 6x9 cm. the amount of detail you get out of a 6x9 negative in an 8x10 print is mind boggling to see in person. i've never seen a digital print come close to that level of detail. if you bring your film to a lab these days and ask for prints, they will run your film through a developing machine and then do a digital scan of your negatives instead of the old school ra-4 wet printing process. then they turn those digital scans into prints, but the quality is pure garbage.



last winter I came across a landlord giving away a shitload of darkroom equipment for free from a tenant who was evicted, so I picked up a bunch of photo paper for nothing. it's expired, but still works fine and produces amazing quality prints. if i were to buy all of this stuff brand new, it would cost me into the thousands.



included in the pile of darkroom stuff was some slides and undeveloped b&w film from the 1970s. naturally, I developed the film and scanned some of the images. the evicted tenant was a woman and she liked to photograph men.





edit: goddamn it, this thread got moved from yospos to here while i was writing this effortpost?
