I recently bought a Yashica 12 that has a little mold on the lower lens. I brought it to my local repair shop who said, "the shutter seems good and that [they] put a roll through and it all seemed good but that I may want to bracket". I have since put three rolls through and all have been incredibly flat despite bracketing up to five or six stops. everything is a medium grey, whites are too dark, and darks are too light. Of the three rolls, they have been developed in different locations (all by me) so It's not the developer and I've developed other rolls from other cameras that came out fine despite being the same type of film. I'm just not sure what to do as my next step, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Welcome to the Forum, Emma. Lets walk through what your problem is.
Without seeing any examples of what you are talking about, it's hard to say what the issue is. The list of things that can cause flat images are: Film type No contrast filter Time of day Cloudy Wrong Exposure and Development issues
We need to know what film you were using, and whether it was still in date. What developer did you use? What method of development did you use? Is your developer fresh? What was the temperature when developed? Did you run through all the speeds on the camera to see if they sounded good? Just how bad is the lens fungus? Is the lens also hazed? Is the aperture actually working properly?
Too many variables go into taking a photo to summarize what the issue is without more information, and examples to look at. A photo of that taking lens would also help.
