* Well that's a big question without a lot of information. Are

you talking a darkroom or a studio and another thing what will you

be taking pictures of people: Adults, men, woman, children,

toddlers, infants. Animals: dogs, cats, horses, pets. well first if

it is a darkroom you will need a room that is at least 10'X12' lots

of shelves there are a lot of chemicals like developing solution,

you will need three tables one is for an enlarger the others are

for developing the film you will need trays in about 3 different

sizes and you will need 3 of each size you will want A good

darkroom timer developing tubes they keep the silver-oxide paper

moving with the chemical you will need a red light about 40 watt

frosted you can get them on-line, line to dry out your paper after

developing. Make sure there are no light leaks to have a bright

light above the door going into the room with a big sigh that

states DO NOT ENTER WHEN LIGHT IS ON. Or you can install a lock

that can only be open from the inside I use both just in case I

forget to lock the door or they don't see the light if your careful

you wont have any accidents. Now for a studio now both of these

will be expensive but the price for a studio can be prohibitively

high with lights boxes flashes and flash triggers do you want them

wired or wireless I wont mention battery's you said you wanted a

room oh in both of these your going to need a lot of AC outlets.

you know I could sit here for hours just going on you asked a

simple question but with out some more info I can go on forever and

this is probably one of the biggest answers on this Wiki and theres

the whole digital realm I didnt even touch on like Photoshop CS3

basic and enhanced there Adobe Darkroom just for DSLR`s Theres also

Adobe After Affects 5.0 I think that's the name is the low end

point and shoot digital cameras and pro-sumers that are kind of new

that give you the advantages of an DSLR but with out the removable

lens well I think this is where this answer ends but if I where you

I would start with a book my favorites are the Dummies Sires of

bright yellow books there just great for someone starting out just

pick what you want to learn and put a dummies in front of it like

Photography For Dummies. You can also goto:
