So armed with the Skink Pinhole Pancake you can see here on the camera on the right https://www.photographerslounge.org/f32/x100-has-me-shopping-old-minoltas-12851/#post96257 and using the zone plate (f/64) on TriX I went out shooting. This happened over a couple weeks time as I was very careful since this was my first time using the skink to think about my exposures. I am both elated that I exposed pretty well for guessing and not being that experienced, and ready to cry because of some of the damage of the images. I am hoping that some of you can tell me what all has happened here.. View attachment 59407 To me I see lint (it's casting a shadow!!) in the upper left, small curved scratches and some kind of scrape line going through the center that is more faint higher up. My camera could have done the two scrapes but it's not consistent over all the photos. View attachment 59408 To the left I see what looks like it could be a water ring, and there's a different kind of scrape mid right.. View attachment 59409 In my minds eye I see bath tissue, wet and rubbed on the negative, really what are these.. dimensional bloblings and look at that diagonal scratch! View attachment 59410 Super sized water mark? To me something that would cast an area that big would be visible to the eye.. and yes I am going to inspect the negatives next.. View attachment 59411 Oh look, a black inky blob thing! Come on now.. View attachment 59412 Oh look I have white orbs! And whatever that burny thing is.. I spent 17USD on developing and scans! Maybe the scratch marks could have been done by my camera, the long parallel ones.. but all of this? Now granted I can tweak a little here and there and fix some things, the images aren't anything important, this isn't my profession.. but I feel cheated here. Amazed at what the zone plate can do and thinking wow if only there was color.. but also mortified to waste my time doing that again.. ..Anyone?
