kitty in the sky. need i say more? :) double-exposure at its best :) 

taken with holga 135bc and 100 asa expired film. 

new roll! (i know, right? god, i’m so rubbish at updating this blog.) and a holga one as well :) this was taken in kadıköy istanbul, on my way to my friends’ apartment. i love old beetles, and i love that this one happened to be yellow. (never had seen a yellow one before) so i couldn’t resist to take a snap. you can see die-hard fenerbahçe fans in the back taking a photo with the alex (de souza) statue in fenerbahçe.

i’m sad to admit that i’ve been moving away from analog for some time. it has a lot to do with the fact i’ve gotten a lot more used to my nikon d90 over the past year. before that i had only used my analog nikon fg and the transition from that to nikon d90 was a bit difficult. and this blog was some sort of a safety blanket during that period in that it created an excuse to still dable in the analog and feel safe with what i’m used to. this isn’t to say that i don’t shoot film anymore, of course i do, it wouldn’t be fun without it :) so, here is one from my last ilford pan 400 asa roll taken with holga 135bc. i love love this photo. i’m very satisfied with the contrast and the sharpness especially. it’s from the fish market in samatya, which is very close to where i live and the sea.

another one from my very first action-sampler experience. it was taken in üsküdar while i was waiting for my friend pelin in a café. i like that the seagulls look like they’re attacking the ferry (which you might say is the case here).

my best friends got me an action-sampler for my birthday this year and i finally finished my first film with it. i love the results sooo much, i can’t tell you. frankly i wasn’t expecting anything for this roll since it’s my first with this camera and it doesn’t even have a viewfinder, which made me a bit paranoid during the process. 
this shot is one of my favorites. it was taken on a train to sirkeci, my model is a random passenger. i like that it’s both static and in motion at the same time. the film was a kodak 200 asa.

two more from my last roll. if you’re wondering why the hell they’re so grainy, click here
while i was going through the photos from this roll, these two instantly clicked in my mind because of their similar compositions. the mosque is the blue mosque and the church is monastery of saint george of the mangana. 

they were taken with a holga 135bc and ilford 200 asa dia film. 

these two are from my last dia roll. the film itself was really expired (i think it was from mid 90s, the horror!) and it wasn’t kept in ideal conditions,  as well, i think. but still, it surprised me to see such horribly grainy results. (nice lesson for the future). anyway, i wasn’t (and am not) upset, since i’ve been using film for a long time and something can always go wrong with it (god knows i’ve had my share of accidents :) ). anyway, though at second glance, as always, they didn’t look so horrible, at least a few of them. these belong to that category. i resized them and made little tweaks here and there and ta-daa! they don’t look so bad, do they? i even like the low-quality look of it.

aaand my latest holga 135bc roll, which i have very mixed feelings about. overall i didn’t like how it turned out very much, but there are a few photos in it that i really liked. this one is one of them. the film was really old and it shows in this one, i think. especially at the top and the bottom.

this is my friend guy being somewhat depressed at my request at the institut français de turquie gallery. it is very underexposed and grainy but i still like it. it was taken with a holga 135bc and kodak 400 asa film.
