“Things could be worse. Suppose your errors were counted and published every day, like those of a baseball player.”
– Author Unknown

Since I’ve been making an unusual amount of mistakes lately I thought it would be a refreshing exercise to publish my own.

This is what happens when you develop film that you thought you exposed but didn’t. How do you do that? You load film in the film holders with the dark-slide showing exposed film (black) facing out Then you mix it in with all the other holders you shot that day.

This is the opposite problem. Make an exposure then put the dark-slide back in the holder the same way you pulled it out it (white) so it appears unexposed and then you use it again, double exposing that sheet of film.

Pushing down on the plunger of a cable release and it won’t go down means one of two things. Either you forgot to cock the shutter which is the better of the two, or you forgot to close the lens after focusing which in this case meant self-portrait.

I don’t mind making mistakes or admitting them because like the saying goes, if you don’t make mistakes, you don’t make anything.
