    and also first attempt at printing in the darkroom... only digital editing was rotating the images slightly with a crappy image program that left straight lines jagged... first photo the face was too dark, hence the poor development

    it looks like the exposure is off. That last two look overexposed and in #1, it doesn't look focused.

    Wow, darkroom stuff eh? Congrats on your first set.

    thanks

    first one i made the fatal mistake of using the metering, but with the light reflecting off the architectural drawing paper i ended up underexposing, but that's what happens when you take photos real fast without thinking

    could be out of focus a smidgen

    the other two i just didn't develop their prints long enough, i liked how they looked at that moment so i yanked them out, but some parts i wish i had left them in (like the blur in the grass with the person-dog photo)
