    list of photographic problems, photographs? troubleshooting ...

    the horenstein book, basic balck and white photography
    has a photographic problems image index ...

    for example ...

    film touched in a reel looks like this ...
    microscratches from film holders look like this ...
    reticulation looks like this ...

    this thread would be a great place for our own
    "messed up .. here is the problem + photo of it" ...
    so when people have troubles they can maybe ID it
    and do better the next time.

    Here's what happens when you load a canister, don't label it, leave it sit for 3 weeks so that when you finally process it you forget that you sneaked in another 120 reel instead of all 35mm reels. So, how many errors does that cover?

    Oh, and then your scanner is set to "color negative" instead of "B&W negative".

    Well, to save you the trouble, I can scan the roll I processed in fixer.

    I once processed 2 rolls of TX in the last of my XTOL that I hadn't used for a month or two, and didn't do a clip test before to see if it was still working:

    Once processed 2 rolls of Fuji C-41 color film in Rodinal thinking that was b&w film. Better, I load the first film and went taking pictures thinking that I was using bw. Changed to the second film and not even then I noticed the error! Only after I take the films out of the tank and saw the orange cast and
