Darkroom in use

Hey hey, everyone! ;D
Photography classes pause for a quick personal photo of my sketchbook.
Used a Nikon FM2 w50mm 1.4 lens
Really tired of red lights and darkrooms with chemical stuff <.<, but oh well : ) for those who don´t know the "old" process of revealing photos, I leave you here a little curiosity ;3

At the moment I´m working in a manga magazine.*o*
I feel so honored with this opportunity! TwT lol

We will soon have the occasional participation of foreign authors, as part of the partnership of NCreatures (the only studio for Lisbon specializing in manga style) with the Comic Party of Denmark and the Nosebleed Studios in Sweden. Thus, our authors will also have their works published in these two countries.

The Banzai appeared in follow-up of the SEMPAI PROJECT, an action for free training that the NCreatures did during more than four years. We use our trips to the events of BD, manga and japanese culture to see the work of young authors. Those who showed potential we offer guardianship and serve as mentors. Therefore, if they are interested or simply curious, send us a mail!
