One of the things about shooting with film is that you have to load the film. Correctly. I've done it before, though it had been a long time. I thought it went fine. After waiting days for the film to be developed at Desert Photo, I eagerly went in today to pick up my negatives and contact sheet. The technician looked at me with sympathy when I told her my name.
"I don't think the film went through the camera," she said.
None of it had been exposed.
My enthusiasm drained out of me and I was listless for several hours. I have just now, however, with the help of the instructions and most especially with Jae's help, loaded a new roll.
