    This one (a favorite subject of mine, shot it many times!) I accidentallky read my light meter as 1 second instead of 1 minute, so I under exposed it horribly. In scanning the negative, I was able to bring back a decent amount of detail, and it got real grainy and ghosty, and I actually ended up liking the result, haha!




    and here's the same scene again, but with the proper exposure (on a different trip, i think)

    I've posted this before, but I've been wanting to revisit it so I'll post it here to highlight my mistake: red apples and dark orange tangerines on a black background just doesn't work. Also, getting pissed when you develop it, realizing it isn't going to work, and sticking it on the scanner slightly wet to put it up for the world to see as a testament to your stupidity is another mistake.

    Oh, and notice the lovely light leak? I missed that holder when fixing the ones with light leaks.

    Just saying.

    Early on I did a portrait of a guy and then accidently double exposed a tree... guess where the erect branch fell?

    Gotta find it and scan it ;-)

    Not an in-camera mistake, but a darkroom mistake. Had the negative upside down when I contact printed it.

    The camera is a Technika IV with a Schneider 150mm f/5.6 vintage lens. Exposure was unrecorded.

    This one was in part intentional. I was trying out my first pack of Fuji FP-100C45. I set this up to see how it worked with an extreme brightness range. This is a north facing window. I knew there would be some flare, but I didn't realize how much.

    I scanned the print below. Then I used Photoshop Elements to boost the contrast. The colors changed to a bluish tinge, but gave me more of a silhouette. I cropped it to fit the window frame. That has become my avatar.

    Dear Robert and Armin,

    Your comments welcome and funny...

    As a side note, that image sells dirt cheap.
