    Well, this is what I have done so far through my photo class at school. We develop and print our own film. These were all done with Tri-X or T-max 400 film.

    The smaller pictures are 5x7 while the bigger ones are 8x11, Ilford paper.

    The scanner I am using isn't the best so excuse some of the washed out-ness and grainyness.

    i t hought perhaps it was from the scanning.

    what does the instructor have to say about these contact sheets and prints?

    The paper we use is Ilford Multigrade IV RC De Luxe.

    As for the developer, stop bath, etc, I think all of it is Kodak but I am not sure.

    My instructor says that my contact sheets are fine, but she also told me to experiment with a higher number filter.

    no, they are not overexposed, its the scanner.

    BTW, In my photo class we are almost done with this cool project were we dye our prints, cut 'em out, and other stuff (its hard to explain). I'll post those when I am done.

    Just a guess, if it's not the scanner and you're working in a lab, is the chemicals are pretty used up. If your film was properly handled and your camera has no light leaks then quite often it is the chemicals of dev, SB and fixer that are passed usefulness.
