    Dark Trailer Dark Slides

    Slowly working on my cargo trailer, as mobile Dark Room, inside height is 78"

    Experimenting with blocking OUT the great outdoors

    Made simple window blackout dark slides without cutting anything, using cheap yardsticks and 24X36" Coroplast, a work in progress

    The Trailer is very useful and gaining functionality every month

    First I camped in it empty, then hauled motorcycles, enlargers, boxes to my new home

    TIN CAN COLLEGE started in 2000, as Video Studio, now with a better trailer

    20 years and 3 years ago images, I have had similar since 1972

    It now has furnace, lights, fridge, work tables, 120 VAC, 12 VDC, generator, propane, cook top. To be used for Wet Plate or Film, contact prints and enlargements

    Also just a place to go right on my patio, I spend many days in it listening to birds, wind and loud rain on the roof, which I cannot hear in the house. Love that music!

    This sounds spiritually similar to my hidden studio.
    Thanks, but I'd rather just watch:

    Impressive setup !!!!


    I'd only add a hole in a door in the back, to place a lens or a pin. This would convert the trailer into a respectable ULF camera.

    Maybe, the back end is a heavy duty cargo ramp

    I can load any camera i can imagine

    Or make a removable rear wall

    It will also load 2 touring motorcycles anytime
