Film unevenly developed - some crystal clear, some very foggy.

Can others edit my Photos
Photos NOT OK to edit
Hi,

I recently got some film developed (fujifilm 200 ISO exp. 2025) using a Pentax camera I am a little unfamiliar with. This resulted in me leaving the development completely in the hands of Snappy snapps, and when I got the photos back I was disappointed. Some turned out really sharp and nice, but others have a fog over that seems to somewhat overlap in the contact sheet between frames. Is it something I did, or a flaw in development, that ruined these photos? I have included some pictures of the various outcomes below. It may be useful to mention that these issues are reflected in the negatives; it is easy to see which photos are clear and which are foggy on the roll too.

Thanks in advance, these forums are always really helpful for me.

It is your camera. Film development cannot product what you are describing.
What do you mean by overlap? It is best to actually show us what the negative looks like, if you can. The negatives are the best way to analyze problems.
 
Yeah, we need to see the negs right to their edges. Put a strip on a lightbox and photograph it. Is the "fogging" happening in random frames, or is it just at the start of the roll (or middle or end)?

YES.....learn to "read" the negatives. Scans/prints do not tell the entire story. We must see the actual negs or we can't help.

Those "fogged" as you say look like they are underexposed? And if you have overlapping images your camera is not advancing properly.

OP did not say the images were overlapping.

The bright frames are OVERexposed, and can be fixed by routine editing. I would post an edit but OP says Not OK to edit.

The OP says that fog seems to overlap between frames, which could be due to a light-leak in the camera or while processing, or the camera may not always be advancing properly. Good luck editing that out!

There probably is no light leak and no fog. It edited easily - try it yourself. (I only did the last image.) (Don't tell the OP though because he/she says no edit.)

Without seeing the negs we are all just guessing.

You continue to ignore what the OP has said about fog between frames.

OP has not returned to the forum since the first post.

Pic 1 looks OK, pic 2 looks way overexposed and fogged, pic 3 looks badly overexposed but rescuable.

My take: user error due to inexperience with a new camera.
