    I just recently starting taking classes and have found the joy of photography. I used to destroy cameras and the films because I couldn't figure it out at all. (Usually 35mm plastic ones, but that's bad enough.) Now, I am 8 weeks into the photography world and I don't think I'll ever leave. We are doing B&W, outside, and daylight photos only this semester. We have to have 8 prints to showcase at the end. Hopefully, this place will give me positive criticism and feedback as to which are the better prints for my portfolio and to of course improve my skills! Hope you all enjoy as much as I do yours.


    Here's my first print ever.

    (yes, I notice the white "feather" on her head, it was dust on the negative.)

    And the rest came stumbling after---

    thank you!!

    yeah, I just spent the last 2 hours and half looking through this site. the work here is incredibly impressive. I had a couple drop-jaw moments of amazement if that makes sense. I can only hope to be like you all! Everyone sounds so friendly, too.

    Welcome to TPF, halologist. For a "very first print" you did a great job, with good contrast. :thumbup: Dust on the negative, and in the darkroom in general, is the bane of a lot of us. Keep the canned air handy. ;)

    Keep up the good work, there are lots of talented folks here, ready to help. Come to the Darkroom forum here with any specific developing or printing issues. :)

    Have fun!
