    I have a makeshift darkroom in my apt, but use a rental darkroom for serious printing. I hope to tackle scanning and digital printing at some point, but don't yet have either a capable scanner, or a printer.

    A dark roomy here!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    I agree with that statement. I truly enjoy darkroom work.

    Darkroom. Love my Omega D2v + Omegalite head. My spouse.

    Scanning. Love my Epson 4990 + Epson Scan. My mistress.

    Best? Time in the field, when I can get away from both of them. Neither knows about my Tachi 4x5, an ideal arrangement.

    Full traditional black&white darkroom (Beseler 45MX) and digital (Epson V750/Canon Pixma 9500), though probably not as "full" as Kirk's.

    For top quality I do traditional enlargements of 4x5 and contact prints of 8x10.
    I use the scanner/printer to enlarge 8x10 negs and when quality is not a paramount concern, and for printing chromes (very little of that).

    If you believe you can, or you believe you can't... you're right.

    Darkroom. Have no facilities for scanning or printing photographs, other than my wife has an Epson all-in-one scanner/printer/fax appliance with her computer.
