@bennett-family, yeah, those lead-in lines aren’t super great. As far as the crop is concerned, it does feel tight, but that’s about as tight as I took the photo unfortunately so I can’t really “zoom out” in post… one way I’m thinking I can “fix” that without taking this same picture again is taking more close photos of different elements of the camera (i.e. the focus guide, or the film reel ) and putting them all together as part of a series on my wall.
One thing that sticks out to me a little is the focus on the camera lens front element. If I were doing this over again, I’d like the part nearest to the camera to be a little sharper.
