Once upon a time, before the digital era, there was a photographic printing technique that called wet printing or darkroom printing or silver gelatin printing. You could print a photograph without using computer or printer by using this mysterious technique. Nowadays there are only a few master remain who knows the mystery. Hold on there, I will tell a secret. I am the master and I will whisper the secrets to you in this blog. Keep this secret with you.

Kentmere Textured Paper
Last two weeks were too busy for me. It was started with a flood in the darkroom. We had trouble times. After that there was annual RFF EuroMeet in Istanbul and I joined the gang. I had very joyful times and met some fabulous people. Then busy working days and finally I found some spare time for uploading a print.
Today I want to upload a photo printed on a discounted paper. Paper is Kentmere F.G. Warmtone fiber paper. It has semi-matt, warmtone and textured surface. For detailed information you can take a look to the website of Kentmere.
After the merger of Ilford and Kentmere, Ilford released a new paper called Art300. Unfortunately, I couldn't have any opportunity to try but on the light of writings on it I resembled its surface to the Kentmere F.G. Warmtone. After reading a Turkish blog that resembles too, I decided upload below print.
And below there is 100% crop of the image. You can easily see the surface texture.
