Question about using Kodak Baby Brownie Special

127 Film Photography received this query from Shawna Jensen. Please feel free to respond with suggestions in the comments section of this post.

*                                                                              *                                                                    *

I am a professional photographer shooting in digital, but I collect all kinds of cameras and have recently taken up film photography. I acquired my grandmother's old Kodak Baby Brownie Special camera, shot with it on Rerapan 400 film, and developed it myself. Below are 3 of the shots I got from the roll and was wanting some advice. Do I need to clean the lens better? Should I use a different film type? Or is this camera just super foggy? I know I was shaky on some shots, but I think I can do better. Basically I would like some constructive criticism or tips.
