    When it goes bad...

    It goes real bad!

    Hi all, I'm fairly new to APUG and thought I should say hi.

    I've been working my way up through the formats over the last year and now shoot on a 1945 8x10 Deardorff.

    I've set up a group on meetups to encourage people to shoot film. Our last shoot was at the famous St Pancras station in London. Weeks of organising were required.

    My first shot was an 8 minute exposure. I finished and dismantled the camera, only to find a darkslide in my bag and not on the film holder...

    When I came to develop I found I had managed to shoot my next 3 shots on the same sheet of film! Triple exposure...

    I feel like a complete fool. Lots of lessons learnt. After 2 years of shooting film without a problem, I guess my luck ran out big style.

    James.

    James, if you are going to make a mistake, make it a big one. First time I exposed for Pan X but had tri d in the camera. It is just the way it goes sometimes. Welcome to APUG. Join the chat room, it can be very entertaining. Don
