    Print Log

    Thanks eheldreth, I like that log. I also try to take pretty good notes, since I'm still learning and I like to be able to look back to see what I was doing. I think I may give your example sheet a try though, as the one I've been using lacks the manipulations areas. I got this one from a book by Shultz I think. It was and is free to copy in case anyone likes it. I like it, but I've been thinking about modifying it to add some areas like your example has.

    This is what I use. In the boxes I draw where the burn/dodge areas are and for how much time.

    Thanks everybody! You've given me a lot to think about and try trying, or just give up and not feel so bad about it. .

    Michael,

    I like the form -- the fields of "soft time" and "hard time" bring to mind visions of a split filtered justice system where prisoners are sentenced to soft time in a minimum security institution, and hard time in somewhere like Fulsom. (:

    I like to treat my prints like the proverbial country club, but occasionally you get the habitual offender that needs a lot of hard time. These ones are sentenced to a specified time of listening to me tell jokes or sing Irish drinking songs.

    Printing Form for Roll Film

    This form I use is for roll film 35mm/6x6cm, so it might not be that useful for LF unless you make some changes.
    It's great for multiple image printing though.
    Some notes:

    - f Hd is the apperture of the light of the enlarger head, if your enlarger supports it.
    - f Ln is the apperture of the lens.
    The + - boxes are for dodging and burning notes. e.g.:
    + | Area | Face |
    - | /Tim/Filt | + 2" 0.5 |

    You are welcome to make any changes (eg. paper size, temp, lens) but if you make millions out of it, I will claim my copyright!

Do you have a standard form, just blank pages in a notebook, write it on the back of the prints before processing, or ??

    Thanks
    I was horrible at noting things too. So I spoke my data on a little voice recorder. And a computer program (dragon naturally speaking) translated this automatically into text. It worked for shooting situations too.

    Now I just write enlarger height, Fstop, papergrade and exposure time on the back of each print with a soft pencil. Like this:

    H 56 cm
    F 11

    I think most LF camera people take some kind of notes. When I use to shoot 35mm I never took notes, but I can refer back to my notes form 30 years ago and possibly figure out how I got such a good negative and tones on a certain print. ( I found Out which film and developer I used back then). As time goes by we find that we have changed so many things that quality may be lacking and with the notes we can find our way back to the quality situation we once had.

    I also am not very dedicated. Here is a starting point. Each roll
    through the camera is one of a series; roll 3 of 2001 is marked
    3 - 01, roll 12 of 2004 is marked 12 - 04 etc. When sleeved
    that information and the range of frame numbers are
    marked on the sleeve.
    For my 6x4.5 15 exposures two 3x5 10 line cards are assigned
    each roll. Exposure and processing information are recorded
    in that order.
    Prints are marked on back and the print info goes on 3x5s. Dan
