HOWTO Screw up

I don't know about you but Ihave screwed up plentyof times
This guide from Ilford shows all my mistakes
When I think back of all the crappy pictures I've taken, it's a wonder I can see at all......
APX It gives us the nicer grays/It gives the cleanes whites/Makes you think all the world’s a sunny day, oh yeah/I got a nikon camera/I love to take a photograph

Yup - been there, done that
Thanks for sharing.
The stale vogue of drowning in technique and ignoring content adds to the pestilence and has become....part of today´s hysteria.

How do you tell exposure error vs development errors? What should I be looking for!

Contrast. Underexposed is uniformly dark with shadow detail intact, overexposed is washed out with highlight detail emphasized, overdeveloped has blocked shadows and blown highlights, underdeveloped is thin and lacking in shadow and highlight detail.

One time I offered to develop film for a friend of mine. I did all of the steps the way I usually develop film, but when I took a look at it after removing it from the tank, it was completely blank! I finally concluded that my friend had not put the roll of film in the camera correctly and it was never exposed.

In the guide from Ilford that you linked, it was the example of "EDGE SIGNING IS VISIBLE BUT NO IMAGES SHOW ON FILM"

At least I can say it was her error and not mine

Leica M9, Leica M3 - 21mm 3.4 Super Angulon, 28mm 2.8 Elmarit, 35mm Summicron, Nikkor SC 50mm 1.4, Carl Zeiss Jena 50mm 1.5, Nikkor 8.5cm 2.0

Mamiya 6 - 50mm f4, 75mm f3.5, 150mm f4.5

Fuji X-Pro1 - 16-55mm f/2.8, 27mm f/2.8
