    Jim's Beemer and process problems

    I shot this with my homemade f/217 6x12 foamcore camera on Kodak CSG x-ray film. The extreme grain is because I accidentally flashed the film with my 'safe' light in the 'dark' room. In spite of this accident, I still kind of like the image.

    X Ray film is not sensitive to red (safe) light so perhaps that was not your issue, the camera may leak the dark out of it.I find xray film quite dense and the scanner doesnt like scanning it it, it better with a thinner negative.
    Nice POV and i like the echoing curves of the grill and foreground shadows

    Good composition. This one worked out well even with a mistake.
