    I've always left mine on "1", maybe it is an old wives tale, but that is the advice from the old timers, like on Graflex.org. It is easy to adjust if they do go off, though.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Carbon printing can use a neg of extremely high contrast -- I was using out-dated (1979 and unrefrigerated) Tech Pan. I purposefully over developed (by perhaps 100%, no record kept) in technol.

    Sometimes one does get lucky! Develop!!!!

    I find that the opportunity to experiment is one of the great by-products of mistakes like double exposures. When I realize I have botched a roll or holder, it gives me complete license to do what I want with that roll or sheet... new developers, new twists in my processing rituals, etc.

    Sirius Glass said, "You can see each exposure if you will just multiplex." That must mean multiple exposures are the original version of Layers.
