Thread: Analogbook - The photographer's notebook

  1. #1

    Lightbulb Analogbook - The photographer's notebook



    So I've been working on this project for the past several months (since October or so... even though the idea originated two years ago while shooting in a remote location)

    ANALOGBOOK is a set of photographer's notebooks / exposure record keepers / logbooks which I hope can be as useful to the professional photographer as the photography student. There is a large format book and darkroom logbook I definitely wish I had back when I was a student. And although I shoot mainly 6x7 now, I know that all the photographic data that I like to record didn't really have a cohesive and beautifully designed solution... so I decided to make it myself. Other artists and photography friends really like the notebooks and want some for themselves so they pushed me to develop the project into a proper product. So here it is, take a few minutes and find out more:

    I'd really appreciate any support and feedback so I can make these the best possible notebooks for the widest variety of photographers. Thanks!

    Much appreciated Christian. It is often daunting posting a personal project to a forum full of fellow serious photographers (or any forum for that matter). People would often rather tear a person or their product idea down before offering advice, feedback or support.

    Thanks again!

    I have seen that kind of comments all to often, sad every time. I have always been a fan of people doing stuff instead of talking so when this came up it was no hard decision. I have my own homemade papers for my notes and they work good for me but everything can be better so keep on working.

    You can see my paper here. It´s made for my needs and lots of information are just to check or do a ring around, easier then trying to write letters and words

    Hope to see your finished notebook.

    I too designed (and redesigned) a page layout for my 4x5 shooting notes. I'm a fan of the "circle the right item" approach. Fast. But, customized for my equipment and way of doing things. (e.g. lens selection, film holder (I use Grafmatics so I have a sheet number option too)

    Printed on "Rite in the Rain" paper, double sided with my laser printer, and I'm good to go...

    I have not bothered with darkroom or small format notebooks.

    Best of luck with your project, it's intriguing.
