    It was overexposed, so I felt like it didn't matter how much I edited it. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that her cheeks came out looking so airbrushed.

    You jacked up the contrast too much and virtually removed the very little detail that existed around the eye area. If you were printing yourself in the darkroom, you could just burn that area.

    That was the picture. :hs: Like I said, this was my first attempt with indoor shooting and a film camera.

    Yeah, but the cool thing with film is that even if you blow the image out, you can still recover it by exposing the paper longer. Whereas with digital, you don't get that ability.

    I don't have darkroom access at the moment. Hopefully I'll get into the photography class I'm waitlisted for this semester, though

    that's what I was going to say, has a better look to it that you can get easily when using film

    when shooting raw, you have more flexibility in correcting any flaws of a photo to an extent.

    I know that, but you could not bring the details in her face back with RAW like you can with film.
