    First 2014 shot, but I suppose I am still struggling to get whites and blacks. Meter readings at the base of the trunks where it is dark was 1.4, on the trunks it was 2.8 and the bright grass behind was at 5.6.

    I rated the film at 320 and overexposed by one stop. Focus is not great as the camera was not focusing not sure why. Developed in D76 stock for 9 minutes at 18 degrees.

    Would have liked more range and sharpness.

    Cheers

    The Gallery is the best place to post images.

    There is no image sharing and discussion thread here, the gallery is the best place to post images, but is for paying subscribers. Is this a scan of a negative or print? When printing, remember that time controls whites, and contrast controls blacks.

    Raffay - This looks like a well-exposed negative to me. You've got good detail in the shadows and no overblown highlights in the sunlight background. If this is is a straight scan of the negative, there's no reason you can't get deeper blacks and more "punch" in the image when you print in the darkroom or post-process. If you had underexposed/overdeveloped the film, you would see more contrast, but at the expense of highlight and shadow detail.

    Can't answer to your problems with sharpness except you will want to use smaller apertures to obtain enough depth-of-field throughout the scene, especially with landscape and scenery shots. If this is 35mm shot, I would shoot at no larger than say f11, which (on a 35mm lens) will means everything from 2 meters to infinity will be in focus. If you took this at 2.8 or 5.6, some areas will be unsharp, depending on where you focus. If you're using autofocus (and it's malfunctioning) I would switch to manual focus.

    This almost looks like camera movement, motion blur. But could the folding 4x5 camera have not locked properly on the front struts?

    Hi Raffay,

    Can you post the density readings at the points where you metered?
