Well. . . here is the first mistake, an unintended double exposure using 4x5 film. I think either photo might have been nice. Despite the mistake, I almost like it. The big surprise to me was that the modified camera does not make a 4x5 negative as advertised, but a 3.5x4 inch one instead. About that, I'm a bit disappointed. I was hoping for the whole shebang.
I loaded up more film yesterday and set out to make some photos. It was bright and sunny. . . until I got to my destination. Then the skies clouded over heavily and storm clouds circled. Since I was only running a test to see if I could make everything work, I just shot a couple pics around my yard. Then mixed chemicals. Then loaded them into the developing tank. Then I souped them for the appropriate time. And then. . . voila!
