Desperately need some advice/help with the RB67, it is so overwhelming! This is my first venture into a camera like this (passed down to me, only used instant/slr/p&s/rangefinders) and I have a question.

I have the Mamiya RB67 with the Polaroid back, I loaded it up and shot an exposure of the Fuji FP-100C and every exposure is coming out just black. I really need some help.

I know it's not the shutter nor the dark slide because I pull that before the shot and insert it right after. I've watched several videos and they mentioned to leave the camera in "Mirror Up", other than that I'm not really sure because I've done "mirror up/normal". Honestly, it could be operator malfunction but I really don't know what I'm doing with this camera. 

Is there any other needed information I forgot to mention?

Thanks.

This is something I cropped to salvage it. It came out better than I thought because I still like it after a couple of days(edit: I'm actually starting the dislike this ish but oh well lool). The original image was horrible.
I got onto cargo so there's more stuff thereee that I had never put here. Could you guys let me know what you think. There's not a lot though... http://cargocollective.com/jeremywhite/

Has anyone here ever pushed ektar 100 to 400 and have it be developed at 100 without being extreeemely underexposed? I know there are a bunch of flickr threads on this but none pertaining to my specific question and they're old. The place I usually go to can't push it.  I'll probably go to the other one by my house but has anyone had experience with a similar situation? I don't want to ruin potentially good pictures. 

To senchi bacontaco and shanklin, I'm going to try out the contact prints when I get back to school. Today's my last day at the place I'm working and I'm already doing another project.

I have no experience with pushing film but I would go just talk to a professional lab about pushing and see what they can do. Usually if they can't do it, they'll recommend a place that probably can do it. Like you said don't want to ruin the photos by processing them normally when you actually pushed them.

yea Im gonna go to the other one in the town over but i got 4 rolls of scratched film back and I didn't handle it during the time like a pussy. So I have to see if was them or not the last time(since they ship out b&w) before I trust em with it. I had to wait a while until they were open again to call because of the summer times.

Hate to be pedantic but that's actually pulling because you've underexposed it and you're developing it 2 stops lower. You're using a color negative so a two stop range shouldn't ruin your photos anyway.

Canon AE-1 Program and some leftover film handed down with the camera from my parents. 200 ISO Fuji I think.

did anyone else's walgreens downgrade their film department? my local one is now sending the film away instead of developing it in-store. it now takes ~10 days instead of 60 minutes. shit sucks.

they're doing that? I was actually wondering where are some places I can go to get film developed. I was also wondering if film processors also take 120 film???

Kind of off topic but...
Jacob your website is sick, but I don't think you need that splash page that says "Jacob Skoglund Photo   Fashion Photography"

if it goes straight to the content, I think it'll be more effective

Thanks man, I've had mixed opinions on it. I have a brand new website I've been working on for quite some time, but the splash page is still the same. I need to find a better picture, but I don't feel like a fashion image really would look well as I will have a ton of different content on the new site.
