I did my first prints in the darkroom this week. I scratched the negatives so they're not perfect, but that was my very first roll of film, too. I need to learn all sorts of things and I knew I would make plenty of mistakes with my first roll of film when I processed it. Now that I have the screw up requirements met, I am ready to play!
Watching the first print develop was so amazing...even after it turned the most uniform, darkest black that I have ever seen.
So...it's not perfect, but it's all mine
