    just started my B&W photo class, and the first roll of negatives i developed all ended up having a strip that is brighter than the rest of the photo on the bottom. The strip is continuous and even throughout the whole roll. Any ideas as to what it might be/a way to fix it?

    no hate haha. i was just wondering if there was a reason you flipped it lol. i just think if the building was in the frame all the way, it would look more complete i guess. to each his own.

    so i am pricing out prints an people said to get a4 prints done for my portfolio. all my pictures get cropped differently and stuff, would that matter?

    protip: when you crop, keep the original aspect ratio

    so if u crop x amount of pixels from one side, crop the same amount from the other?

    sometimes things just look better cropped certain ways

    would it be dumb to just have my portfolio on my laptop and bring that around to show people? that way i dont have to worry about printing and stuff. i have a few pics that have weird crop sizes though. fuck idk haha

    Keeping the original aspect ratio wouldn't crop equal pixels off both sides unless your image is square, it keeps the crop in proportion to the original image. Maintaining the aspect ratio can be useful but its not something you want to do all the time, especially when making prints. 8x10 isn't a natural format for images.

    As far as portfolios go, carrying it around on your laptop is unprofessional. If you don't want to make a book and get prints done, put them online. There are plenty of free portfolio based web sites and tools out there. If you print your shots or not you want to maintain consistency when it comes to portfolio.
