Dino! It didn't turn out all that bad.
Lens: 50mm f1.4 Camera: K1000 Photo Location: JAPAN ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/2s Aperture: F1.4 
Posted By: Harbaror, 11-26-2020, 05:07 PM

This is my second roll of film I have ever taken and ever developed. (first one turned our very overexposed and was more or less a big fail, but also a big learning experience.)

Please forgive me the very bad scan, I only have an all-in-one printer/scanner/copier and the result isn't great. I am very surprised though how nice the real photos turned out, the contrast is very deep and I think and feel that I have more or less achieved a correct exposure. But as we all know, a correct exposure doesn't mean a good photo. So what I am looking for here, isn't so much the photo itself but if I have successfully managed to achieve a good exposure.

I am still learning and it is a lot of fun.

Thank you for any critique bad or good ;-)

Negatives will always scan much better than prints do.

If i were you, the first thing I would do it to explore possible avenues to scanning the actual negative.

That is a great advice and one that i didnt think about AT ALL. I do have the option when developing the photos to get them on a CD. So I assume that the photo shop I send the roll to uses the negative to digitalise the photos. I would get good quality scans I think.

Thank you

Check what resolutions they offer. Often they are fairly low resolution and more resolution is significantly more expensive.

Thank you for the comment.
I checked it, and it said 2mega pixels, not very high. I guess it is fine for web, but not for printing.
I was looking at an Epson scanner which also did negatives, that might be a good option, for the future of course. I am no where near needing anything of the sort for now.
