    National Parks

    Hello,

    I will be travelling to the Grand Canyon and other parks in that area then across the Nevada desert to Yosemite and other parks in that area in June of this year.

    I will be carrying a digital camera plus a 5 x 4 Shen Hao. I have 7 double film holders which I will use and refill as necessary. I hope to use both B&W and colour negative in the Shen hao.

    What is the best way to keep used film in some sort of order so that I can be sure what negatives I am loading into my developing tank.
    I usually shoot duplicate B&W'S, developing one and then if necessary changing the development of the second later.

    Thanks

    One common way is to carry a number of empty film boxes in which you can store film as you unload it from your film holders.

    Politically, aerodynamically, and fashionably incorrect.

    It sounds like a great vacation!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    Hire me as your "film coordinator" so you can focus on the images. (pun intended)
