    looks like the focus was off a little.

    That is partly the scan, and partly photobuckets reduction of the image. The actual prints a quite a bit sharper. I did pull the focus a tiny bit to soften the image. Do you think I missed the mark?

    i personally think it could do to be a little sharper. i do like a soft focus for nudes, but i think this one was borderline blurry

    Again, a lot of that is in the scan. I do need a better scanner.
    I may take the negs down and have them scanned, but this print was seriously burned to blacken the background.

    The backdrop is a black linen bedsheet, and she is sitting on a black satin bedsheet. Dark, yes, but I wanted it darker so the model popped off the image a little more. Don't think I can do that with a scanned neg.

    I prefer these kind of shots to have a bit more contrast. Her skin tones are a little flat and boring in 2. In 1 the most lit part of her is her foot, which is a little odd. So her foot is blown out and the rest of her looks grey.

    I know that having better lighting comes down to the kind of equipment you have available, but i wonder if you could experiment with bouncing the light around a little better.

    Looks good, but lost a bit of detail in the hair, though.

    Mind you any editing I do will be done in an enlarger, not a computer. These are film prints, not digital photos.

    FYI - you might wanna edit your post to show just the link. Froum rules dictate that any nude photos not be directly displayed.

    Thanks for the edit, how did you do it?
