    How do you mark your plate holders?

    How do you mark your plate holders? I print small labels (ca 1,5 x 3 cm) on thicker paper, put Scotch Magic tape on the side I write on, and attach them to the holders with double sided tape. It works nicely. With a pencil I write the film type they are loaded with, and after exposure I mark them with an "X". It's easy to write and erase on the matte tape surface.

    The only marking that I place on the plate holders is a number, usually inscribed on a small sticky-backed circular label. The numbers a semi-permanent, used to identify each holder. I annotate details with regard to the specific holder, it's number, film used, exposuse, how I felt, weather, etc in a small notebook. After film development I will transfer this information onto to the protective film sleeve with a fine tip permanent marker, only for those few negatives that are worth maintaining.

    My film holders have a little white areas already for writing in. In that spot I write the holder number in ink (sides are "a"or "b") and in pencil I write the name of the film...or perhaps just the ASA since I do not use a wide variety of film. Exposure info goes into a notebook after each shot, and that info and development info goes onto the paper 4-fold envelope the negative is stored in.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Circular label: green for slide, orange for color neg, black for B&W.
    An extra circular label can be added: blue for T-film, or white with speed for B&W

    Has been working for the past 25 years this way, mind you I seldon switch film, so it is always clear to me.

    I seldom take notes of the exposure. I guess I'm lazy, but somehow I use to remember what camera I used and exposure for important shots. I do have a small notebook somewhere that I bought for taking with me, but...
