Red streaks in pictures


 
 
Hi,
I got red streaks on some of the pictures in a roll. The streak is always in the same place on each negative that has a streak. I'm thinking it's flash related, but I don't really know what I did wrong and how to fix it. Please help!
Thanks!

  Looks like a light leak to me. If so, the streak would be in every photo after the first appearance to the end of the roll. Check the camera back for crack(s). If the camera back has a window showing the film can, check the integrity of the surrounding foam.

Benjamin Rivera   Thanks for your response. This camera is like new and I can't check the foam because there is a roll in there right now. The streak is definitely not on all the photos after the first appearance.

Here's a link to the whole roll.

Alexander Williams   The fogging will lessen as you prceed further down the roll. This is because the light is stronger towards the outermost part of the roll (the source of the leak) and gets weaker the further into the roll it goes. This light fogging could have been caused by a slight opening of the camera that you were unaware of (i.e. a young child playing around) or also could also have been caused at the photo developers by someone that was less skilled at opening film canisters.
