Restoring 35mm Sears camera images

Recommended Posts

The  shot below is a blow up of the boats picture. It was originally a photo taken long ago with a 35mm Sears camera..  What causes all the squiggly patterns that make up the background I am trying to get the pattern out of the clouds and the white specks from the dark wall . Thanks in advanced

Looks like an emulsion problem compounded with compression and the white specks look like gravel in concrete.

Yes, it could be reticulation caused when the emulsion expands and wrinkles. Ironically, in this recent post  was asking how he can get a reticulation effect into his images.
