I know what you mean.  Just when I thought I had made most of the mistakes 
possible in 35mm, I started shooting 4x5.  The list of errors seems to be 
endless.  I like yours of not covering the film box-I'm sure I'll try it one 
day.  I've done it with paper, but not film.  How come these simple 
mechanical cameras (Leicas- there I worked it in! and 4x5) are so 
complicated?  Of course the fault may not lie with the equipment, but maybe 
the operator.  No, couldn't be!  When things go wrong I remind myself to 
breathe, breathe...
