Thread: forgot to push process slide...

  1. #1

    Angry forgot to push process slide...

    Yesterday afternoon dropped 2 rolls of slide for my elephant preview zoo shots at Ruby but forgot to tell them to push process 1 stop...hehe, Die liao..

    Guess yesterday wasn't a good day for me, my POSB atm card got swallowed by one of da ATM machines in Peninsula Plaza...I left penniless now...Must get a replacement, darn...

    Just wondering, how bad will da pic be underexposed if its processed 1 stop lower from what it supposed to be?

    Just go to any POSB branch and you can get a replacement card easily.

    You might have truoble if the metering is very acuurate.. If abt half a stop under, you could still use digital to push up a bit to reveal more details.

    Maybe u can try calling them.

    ouch... negatives not so bad, but slides very hard to compensate. happened to me before so i know the feeling. well at least next time you'll be a bit more paranoid about giving developing instructions, like me...

    I have made the same mistake so do what I used to do,

    I would have sticker sheets in my camera bag that I put on the exposed rolls.

    The stickers were marked for either push/pull processing and different stops. Comes in handy when out shooting heaps of rolls and then trying to remember which rolls were pushed when it is time for processing.

    and this has reminded me to get some printed up again... I haven't had the need for push/pull processing since getting back into 35mm photog in Jan but better to have them ready for when I do.

    That's a good idea, Jimmy...

    But luckily 1 stop mistake is not so bad for my slides this time.
    It is indeed most of da pics came out more or less half stop underexpose, it could've been worst if I tried to push 2 stops...
