Mistakes were made

I’m over half way through my first box of Arista Ortho Litho and I only have a few decent negatives to work with. In other words, a lot of mistakes were made. Here’s a brief run down.

  1. Used the wrong safelight
  2. Put the film in the film holder backwards
  3. Which meant it went into the development tank backwards
  4. Overdeveloped
  5. Underdeveloped
  6. Used too little developer
  7. Forgot which direction to move the fstop to let in more light
  8. Used exhausted fixer
  9. Forgot about bellows extension compensation

So now I know.
