Well took some test shots today. with Arista 100 film. First three negs totally black. last one totally clear. D76 for 6mins per the dev paper. ideas?
Make sure you remove the correct dark slide, the one nearest the lens not the one in the rear. This will ensure you dont expose the wrong sheet of film. As for the clear sheet, you most likely didnt expose it at all.
