Additionally, it is necessary to develop the photo properly. Since the development is done manually, we highly recommend spinning the crank slowly and evenly, especially as you reach the final stages when the film comes out.
- Why is my photo too dark?
A dark photo means that it is underexposed. It's essential to calculate the exposure time accurately. If you are taking photos indoors with tinted windows, getting a good photo may take 30-40 minutes of exposure.
