    YAPN - Yet Another Photographer's Notebook

    Hello,

    I am a follower of this forum since 2010, but I never felt able to contribute.

    After 30 years of photographing in 6x6, 6x7 and 4x5 I had a closer look at my documentation behavior.

    I always want to keep photography easy, so I don't like to calculate and measure too much.

    I developed a ticketing system to take notes about 4x5 exposures. I sticked the tickets on the film holders. After development I stapled them in the negative folder.

    Then I tought: what about a little notebook that contains all these informations and a few others, too?

    But these notebooks were expensive (10 USD / 20 forms) and didn't contain the informations I needed in the field, eg. simple diagrams of movements, simple bellows extension/filter factor tables, simple reciprocy charts, zone system tables.

    I found a self publishing solution, and I produced this little notebook, see https://yapn77.wixsite.com/yapn

    It has 140 printed forms, so you can fill in the data of 140 sheet films 4x5/8x10 or 12 x 140 = 1680 medium format exposures.

    I hope I kept it as simple as possible.

    You can download it for free (PDF), you also can buy (Amazon) and enjoy it in the field (12x19x2,2cm)

    Regards

    Out of stock! Perhaps not sold in NA.

    Great acronym!

    I prefer a purchased book with sturdy covers.

    Does not appear on Amazon. As far as I could tell. (The second sentence is a huge caveat!)

    I switched the button to vend it in North America. in a few days it should be available. Please be patient. here's an alternative link, but I do not know wether they deliver to North America: https://www.bod.de/buchshop/yapn-yet...-9783746058719

    There is a PDF to download, for free. Just try it, perhaps your convinced, perhaps not, and in this case you will not spend money on things you don't need.

    Hey, thanks a lot for your input!

    Yours

    Daniel, Froeliche Weihnachten! Und danke for making this book. I am going to wait until it is available in North America because I think the format (9 x 15 cm) will be much easier to use than the pdf download, at least for me. Again, welcome to this community!
