Often mistaken for underdevelopment, this problem is caused by not enough light reaching the film when you were shooting. You can be pretty confident that if your edge numbers are well defined but your image area is 'thin' then exposure, and not development, is the problem (see Figure 48.9).

Fault prevention: To stop this occurring again make sure that you always set the correct ISO for the film stock you are using and that your shutter speed and aperture settings are appropriate for the scene.
