    Good job. First prints are never great. They are just an affirmation that you can do it. Now starts the good part: you get better. And ditto about that having fun part. I'm still having fun.

    Cheers,

    Oh yeah, that picture is total crap, LOL! It is overexposed on one side and under on the other. I was using medium format film for the first time and a camera I had never used before. All the shots came out wonky, I don't think the back of the camera closes properly.
    We hadn't intended to print anything, but picked that as the best of a bad lot because I got the film loading down so quick (I practiced with bad film at home the night before) and we had time to kill.
    We'll see how things turn out next week when I do 35mm with cameras I am familiar with that shut properly. I was just thrilled there was even one picture that turned out AT ALL.
    Also that is a cell phone photo of a print, it doesn't look THAT bad, but it's for sure not going up on the wall or anything.

    I'm just amazed that Mitzi Gaynor is posting here on APUG .

    Congratulations, and welcome to what has been an almost life-long source of enjoyment for me.

    My first print in my Grandfather's darkroom ( with a lot of help ) was of a shot I took on a camera he leant me ( KODAK Retinette ) of a mirror class dinghy on Lake Windermere in 1969...I still have the print, the neg, the camera and most importantly...the passion, I still love printing.

    Congratulations! It's so exciting to see your first negative and print, I still remember mine, it was absolutely terrible, but it got me hooked
