Intellectual effect

This image is very special moment for me. Two of the most important intellectual of Turkey are in the image. Baskın Oran and Yaşar Kemal. It is impossible to express my opinions about these two tremendous guys.

Today I want to share some pinhole prints. I made a matchbox pinhole just for fun and I loaded them with some old film that I didn't use. Here are the photos:




Print Details:
Paper: Ilford Multigrade IV RC Glossy (1M)
Paper Size: 12.7x17.8 cm (5x7in)
Image Size: 11x11 cm (4.3x4.3in)
Developer: Dektol 1+2 (1.5 min.)
Toner: Untoned
Film Format: 24*24 mm

As you easily indicate there are lots of "printing errors". First of all, I couldn't estimate exposure values when taking photographs and as a result of this all images were heavily exposed. Moreover all images on the negatives have very low contrast. For this reason I had to print all this images at 4.5 grade.

Another issue there is a scratch at top part of the images. This film was a bulk film and I rolled it with bulk loader. When loading it I made a mistake and for this reason I scratched all of the bulk film ( approximately 20 roll).

Furthermore, in the first and second images there are marks due to light leaks. I have to use more electrical tape for light proofing.
