So, in my black and White chemical photography class I decided that Coraline would be a perfect model, she is 11 weeks old and a very sweet little girl. These were taken while I was letting Coraline get some exercise outside. I am hoping they don't stretch out the topic page, so sorry if they do. I have been a very proud hedgehog mommy, I'm sure everyone I know is annoyed with my constant talk of her.

Wow, those pictures are beautiful! :D Coraline (great name, btw) is a beautiful girl! And I'm in the same boat, my friends and family are all sick of hearing about Lily this and Lily that. :lol:

Thank you, luckily my mom loves Coraline as much as I do. My friends have to tell with me always showing off my pictures of her. I don't care though. I love her too much too not show her off.

Nice photos!! They have really great exposure. I noticed a water spot on your third photo. That spot may have come from your negatives... try re-washing them and do an extra rinse without the drops in at the end. I find those off spots can really take away from the focus of the photo... and we wouldn't want anything taking away from the cute model!

Yeah, I know what you mean I walk around all day smelling like fixer. Developing the negatives is the worst part to me though. Thanks, it was difficult Coraline did not want to stay still for more then two seconds.

Great pics & real cutie! Nice to see pics that have been developed instead of just digital shots straight onto a computer ( which i'm afraid i am now very guilty of)! :oops:

Thank you very much, as much as I dislike the smells of chemical photography and having to take it for a grade it really is a fun way to spend time on.

Lovely pictures! My Dad did a lot of black and white work and used to develop his own at home. I especially like the third, it makes me want to pick her up and cuddle her :)

You could, honestly anyone could do photography if they took the time to learn, and if they took the time it takes to take pictures, develop film, and enlarge the pictures. It's really a labor of love once you get into it. I won't really be able to take black and white photos anymore. I don't have toe resources too, but I have a bunch of Coraline pictures. I am going to frame them and hang them in my room. ^_^
