    Re: Writing down the details

    I don't usually.. I can usually remember what lens I used.. so sometimes I'll make on the mylar neg envelope something like: 12" V @f8

    if I am testing .. I will put stickers on the holders labeled A, B, C etc...then make a chart to shoot from...like A: Wolly 305 @5.6 B Wolly 305@8


    then I will add what corners I clipped in the film loading bag 0, 1, 2, 3 or 4 to the chart so that after development..I can figure out what is what and mark the envelopes

    the hard part is making sure I stick the holders in the bag in the right order and not messing it up while unloading

    Re: Writing down the details

    I think the best thing i just write down or type the details and print them out, then stick or clip it with the sleeve so i can see the details all the time i use that film sleeve, and good with white background mostly so i can see the B&W negative better.

    Good to see/know different members ways of recording things, some do and some don't and at the end everyone has own ways of dealing with it, i will see if my way with printed sheets will work fine then i will stick with it, if it is not much worthy i just stop it and don't look back.

    No field notes except snapping a pic with my phone of my camera with the subject in the background as a time stamp to reference later. Negative sleeves just get a labelled with subject, location and date exposed.

    I make notes in my phone's note area, then it's always accessible to me through the cloud wherever I am and I don't lose it.
