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. Itīs 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.
