    All (except for the last one) Developed in my Basement. :D
    Shot with a Canon T70 and a 50mm 1.8 Lens (stopped down to 2.0 most of the time, to be serious I can't find a way to manually change that.. even though there is a dial on the lens, it doesen't change nothing)

    only PP used was to scan and clean up the negatives

    (ISO 100 Film used)

    what do you think? :confused:

    PS: this is the first time developing pictures :) but I like how they came out :D

    Your development process is top-notch, they came out really well. As for compositional critique. In the first two photos I would make the bottle of Tabasco Sauce brighter, either by using a flash to fill it in or a reflector just because the guy in the background is wearing a white shirt and the bottle is dark. So because the photo is black and white my eye is immediately drawn to his white shirt because it's the brightest thing in the photo, but your subject i'm sure is meant to be the bottle. Not a major setback, just something to consider. The photo with the gentleman holding the iPhone is pretty neat, I would just crop out the black rectangle in the bottom right corner, it's a tad distracting. The 3rd one of your friend on the couch with the guitar, this angle just does not work for me, the strings lead me one way, but the top of the couch takes me another way, maybe get a little tighter on that one, but it's by no means a "bad" photo. You've got good eye and apparently a natural talent. Keep at it! I'm interested to see in what you come up with next!

    Thank you for your critics :D I Didn't even think about the white t-shirt, i'll try to brighten it up /darken the background in post, I don't have a good flash (only for my EOS witch doesen't work on the T70...)

    I tried to get closer to the strings... but my lens would not let me focus closer , its not a macro lens... :(

    I will def. do the crop on the iPhone one, thanx :D
