Hey all! Long time browser, first time poster here. This summer, I rented a Linhof Technika from the university I work at and took it to my cottage this past weekend to give large format portraiture a try. During my undergrad I probably only made 8-10 exposures on 4x5 film and tended to gravitate more-so towards the medium format workflow. Picking up LF again was an incredibly pleasant and satisfying process and to my surprise I managed to make 12 exposures without a single mis-step. Once I was back home I unloaded my holders and transported all my film to a carrying box, unzipped my dark-bag, put away my holders, and for some reason, (blame it on distraction or stupidity) I opened the holding box and saw the bare flesh of my undeveloped film. Now I know there isn't much hope for that top sheet, but I've opened up camera backs before mid shoot and have been surprised to find nearly intact images only a few frames down the roll. I won't have a chance to develop the film for another 2 days but I guess I'm curious to know if anyone else can share some wisdom or solidarity to get me through the next 48 hours of frustration and kicking myself. Alternatively, if you've got any veteran tips to pass along to a beginner like myself, I would very much appreciate your know-how. I'm still looking forward to feeding this camera a good number a sheets this summer and I know mistakes are as much a part of the learning-process as anything!
