    Every photographer says its a slippery slope, and every normo looks at me like I am a nutter.

    I am getting a little scared :S

    Hey sorry missed that you're in England. Hopefully some will chime in with some recommendations over there.

    You'll get plenty of advice on what not to do, usually after you've done it... One thing I do after making an exposure is to note the shutter speed/aperture on a label (0.5"x1.5") and stick it on the top of the DDS - Even if the dark slide gets put back round the wrong way, I can see which sheets have been used.

    Good advice on the stickers, may have to try that myself. Currently I write my notes in a small note book along with the film holder number. Another thing that I have started doing on the recommendation of a forum member is putting my holder in quart ziplock freezer bags. This is to protect the holder both from dust and to prevent the dark slide for being accidently opened. Works great.

    Ok got my shutter tester working, and now I know all the speeds on my shutters, not to far off, only on the high speeds and once shutter bounce at 1/500 so I won't use that.

    Now all I need is the weekend and dry weather and off I go

    Weather forecast is for sunshine and light wind on Saturday. A slight possibility of snow overnight, and a sunny, still day on Sunday.

    You have the camera, a few sheets of film, and good weather. No excuses to post the results on Monday

    Congrats! You'll have fun--enjoy the experience. There is an active LF group in the UK isn't there?
