If you have not arrived here from The Online Darkroom and you've been trying to decipher this blog with Google Translate, you can find translations of a couple of posts here.
In its original Turkish version I conceived this blog as a way of sharing my passion and what little information I have about film based photography and the darkroom, and hopefully encourage a few in my community. Never had I thought that there would be an international interest for my writing. Now that Bruce has asked me, I will try and translate some select posts once a month to be published on The Online Darkroom.
At this point I feel the urge to emphasize that I claim neither mastery nor authority. Most of the technicalities I write about I've learned from books and people far more knowledgeable than myself. I hope that the technical bits in my posts act as a useful starting point for the less experienced darkroom enthusiast. The key to improvement is further patient experimentation and adaptation to individual circumstances.
As a user of both digital and analog means I'm convinced that printing black&white film in a darkroom is still a valid and highly satisfying way of producing prints of superb quality and this should not be allowed to die without a fight :) Coexistence is the key word for me.
