Above, Deardorff 8×10 with 300mm at f/5.6. Below is the same lens at f/32. Obvious light leak at the top of the sheet. I let the students load the film that they are going to expose, and I remember that when I went into the loading room to check this that the bottom flap of the film holder was up, with the darkslide under it rather than inserted into it, so must have happened then. This was the first time they had loaded any sheet film, let alone 8×10, so little mistakes are allowable – this is a learning process.
