    Got the chems in a Kodak E-6 kit out of order once--very interesting results, but screwed none the less. The magenta blotches really detracted from the scenes.

    Developed two rolls of TMax 400 (120) using HC-110 @ dilution "H" and times as indicated in the Mass. Dev. Chart. It was only when I was replacing the little paper tab on the film back that I realized I wasn't shooting TMax, but Tri-x . . .

    i once accidentally mislabeled a bottle of chemistry and ended up developing some hp5 in fixer and then discarding it as a one-shot, mixing up some new fixer and fixing the film for the second time.

    Oh ya, then there was the time I loaded a roll of 36 exp film and it never advanced, thought it was done and pulled it for development. Not a single exposure, all the great one time only shots were not there. Note to self: ALWAYS check to ensure film is loaded properly and advances!!!!

    Two boo booscome to mind.

    I photgraphed an entire assignment without loading film into my camera.

    The other was bulk loading 200 ' upside down. In other words I couldn't place the cartridges in my Canon

    Please don't tell anybody.

    Hmmm I could go down the list of what's happened in my darkroom this week with the younger kids lol.

    forgetting to turn off the focusing switch when loading easels.
    Moving the test strip paper/ not holding the blocking board still.
    forgetting to use the designated pair of tongs for each chemical.
    moving from chemical to chemical way to fast while counting at super speed, some think its smart to count by 2, or 5, or 10s.
    Forgetting to flip the negative.
    Checking to make sure the negative is placed well before closing the carrier and crushing film.
    Taking out a cell phone in the darkroom.

    Though not this week, last week somehow a student got a bit of red play dough onto the focusing ring of my nikkor 50mm 1.8 AF lens I bring in to let them use.

    Ive learned not to stress about any of this anymore since they are so young. If they mess up we just make another, and use the messed up sheet of paper to paint with or turn it colors in daylight. I think its because of the fact that the city and statewide tests have been over, and they are anticipating summer and dont keep anything else in their minds except that and games lol.
