    I really think I've seen many more (and better) examples of this, but here is all I could come up with in my little library. Two pages from Kodak's 1988 Darkroom Dataguide ​:

    The first time I used a steel reel I didn't know you were supposed to load from the center. I tried pushing it through as if it were a non-ratcheting plastic reel. I managed to get the entire roll loaded, and later discovered the film was touching itself in many places. Very few frames came out.

    Or twice... That happened to me last summer. Had a brilliant morning of shooting on the shores of Lake Michigan, and after I started re-winding the film thought it felt a little bit light. One roll of 120 - not there.

    When you turn on the enlarger and realizes that the lens is wide open because you forgot to stop it down after refocusing .

    One of the funniest things a student once said to me is "Clive, please come and look at my enlarger, as the image is very dim and I think the bulb maybe going".

    The best guide to darkroom disasters was a book by the East German ORWO I found in a university library (along with a whole lot of excellent books on the technical aspects of photography, a far cry from the "just follow the manufacturer's data sheet" given in modern books on darkroom technique). I wish I could remember the title. It was an English edition. Something like "Faults in Photography". Imagine an entire book devoted to all the things that go wrong in photography! It would be a bestseller even today.

    I might even have caused some things they never even thought could happen!
