Large format photography takes a lot of concentration and accounting for many things all at once and a simple mistake can either cost you or create a happy accident, like this one. I had forgotten to turn over the film holder for the second photo after I had taken the first one not realizing what I had done until I was developing. As I pulled the negatives out of the Jobo tank I was greeted with a lovely double negative. At first I was disappointed in myself, but after scanning and seeing how it turned out my mind changed instantly.
