The concept of good photography, as generally understood, is virtually synonymous with sharp focus. Blurred and out-of-focus images, however are as inherent to the medium as those that are crisp, clear and instantaneous.

Inside you will find negatives which will not make satisfactory prints.

Dark negatives indicate over exposure.
Light negatives indicate under exposure.

Blurred images indicate camera moved, subject moved, or out of focus.

Black streaks indicate camera leaks light.

Whenever you are in doubt, be sure to check the operation of your camera before you load it again.
