I took this photo while I was working on the second attempt of a portrait project that ultimately took 3 attempts to get right. The first attempt didn't really work for the project because I used natural lighting. On this second attempt the developing tank broke open and exposed all three rolls of film. I threw the dropping tank in the loading room and ran in behind it with a back up tank. Of the 96 shots I had on three rolls of film, only three were salvageable, of which this is one. Finally on the third try the project was a success [see "Michael"].
