      All our yesterdays today!
      Digital also has it headaches.

      I have no idea but maybe a mould in the paper/emulsion? Great old school shot by the way!

      It is most likely dust / dirt from the bellows that got on the negative.
      Open the camera back , put it on a sheet of paper and move the bellows to check.

      Damn I knew I should have given it a blast of canned air before putting the film pack in - any advice on how to get the pack in & out - I've got 7 shots left in it don't want to waste them :(

      I also recommend the shake it over a piece of paper trick.
      My old Agfa Isola had the same problem but doing that cleared it right up.

      Going to give it a go tonight, was too tired by the time it got dark last night to do it! Fingers crossed it'll go ok, I'm not that confident about removing & re-inserting the pack given I've only done it once before and that was in the light.

      wooo a 450, brilliant!! I love this shot, you have managed to make Towan in the summer look dreamy and lovely instead of manic! perfect amount of fadedness..

      re: specs.. I had that really badly on the first few shots on my miniportrait.. i blew it out on the inside and cleaned lenses and it has gone now ..

      Unfortunately it really was manic!

      those black specks are beauty which can never be photoshopped into a picture. sure there are "grain" effects....but that randomness is in a league of its own.
