Can anyone please offer suggestions as to how best to avoid scratches on exposed film which is stored in a box prior to processing. The circumstances are as follows. Iíve just returned from a 3 week photo trip. Whilst away I stored my 125 or so exposed unprocessed 5x4 sheets (TMY-2) in two 5x4 film boxes. The sheets were loose in the boxes. As always I endeavoured to ensure film remained dust free, but thatís not too easy during 3 weeks in mainly desert conditions. We drove may miles on dirt roads much of which was heavily washboarded so the car and my film were vigorously shaken Ė day in day out. This has resulted in some abrasion on a few sheets where a particle of dust has been trapped between two film sheets. Attached is a 100% clip from one such where the abrasion is in the sky. Iíve upped the contrast in the abraded area to highlight the effect. So, I know what the problem is. But whatís the best way to avoid it in future? I need to prevent film sheets from sliding against each other so can anyone suggest the best way. Is it simply to put two elastic bands around the sheet stack or is there a more secure and certain way than that please? I want to avoid ruining more film in future. Thanks.
