    I could not find a thread for people to post their b&w prints that aren't digital, nor processed at walgreens. I want some critique from people familiar with darkroom techniques.

    I scanned mine, and I'm guessing there was something on the scanner that caused the little white specks on the images (it's not dust on the negs, because the actual prints don't have them).

    Photobucket is down at the moment, so I'll have to post them later, but everyone else should post theirs. no digitals please!

    i really like the portrait of the girl. i think its amazing. shes beautiful and the sullen look on her face matches the dust and scratches on the prints nicely *high five*

    I had a thread but this one looks like a better idea. I also had the problem with scanning my prints on here and the dust.

    edit* I also really like your first print, how did you splice the image? Did you just sandwich the negs or did you have to print twice then dodge/burn or something like that?

    you need to refix that last image,

    let me understand , you printed these and scanned them, or you developed the negatives and scanned them?

    Either way, on my monitor, the contrast is all over the place, some too flat , some too contrasty.
    Several look like multi-exposures and are underexposed and none are very sharp.

    scanning is another skill set all it's own so it is very difficult to know were the issues lie

    I'm digging the second one and the fifth one. The second is almost like a computer wallpaper. The fifth one has a little bit of a...demonic tone to it.
