Thread: Light Streak

    Light Streak

    Hi all,

    New to this forum and 4x5 photography. Really enjoying going down the rabbit hole and learning as much as I can.

    I took some photos this past weekend and on 2 portrait shots noticed a slight light streak / leak (?) across my subject's face.

    I'm wondering if anyone knows if this is something that could have occurred during my processing (not enough developing time?), if it's a light leak from my film holder, or if it's just a trick of the light I didn't notice when setting up (although the light did not appear when I took some pictures from the same angle on my iPhone)

    I'd also like to correct this different shading on the face in Photoshop but I am a novice there as well. Any insights on the tools I could use to help correct would be much appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Evan

    Looks like lens flare to me.
