"Cleanliness is next to Godliness" --- a hair or fiber in your darkroom or changing bag can end up as a hair in the gate. Use a vacuum cleaner that exhausts to the outside to clean, damp wipe work surfaces to remove dirt.

Let your eyes accomodate for several minutes, and be sure there are no light leaks into the darkroom. Watch out for things like luminous watches and the status light on your cellphone.

If you have to wind the film, wind slowly and evenly. Handle film by the edges only and don't touch or rub the image area. Ground your rewinds and yourself to minimize static buildup that can cause static marks.

Be sure to let cold rolls of film warm up until there is no condensation on the can, or you risk condensation or moisture static on the film itself.

Be meticulous and neat in your camera logs and recordkeeping. Maintain clear communication with your lab contact person.
