Yesterday (Sunday) was my first day as Photo Tech. I was nervous because the company kinda just throws you into that position without any real training and you have to learn your first day on the job (panicking the whole time, while on the phone with an experienced coworker). That didn't go too bad, and I only had one roll of film to develop the entire evening. So about halfway through I thought I would develop my own as another practice.
I prepped my film and developed it in one of our foreign machines. After my break I excitedly looked over the film to get a sneak peak at my photos. *GASP* The entire strip was completely BLANK! Empty! Gone! The photos were never there at all! I had done something wrong when I had loaded the film and had waisted the entire roll. Devastated, confused, and frustrated, I was relieved that I had developed the film myself rather than having my blunder discovered by others!
As soon as I experienced this relief, I turned to a coworker who was at the register and told him about it. Stupid, but oh well. I made light of it, laughed, and was able to moved on.
I also bought more film so that I'll be able to try again! haha
Hopefully I will have some actual photos up soon...
Oh, and the photo is from Mississippi a year ago.
