    Along similar lines, I've found with Efke films it is better to remove the interleaving sheets before shooting the picture. While a post-it note is effective as a mask for the portion of the sheet to which it is attached, the full sheet with interleaving is better still. tim

    P.S. No, I used this approach at two different times and not on the same shot.

    I'm glad I stopped using tape flags to mark my holders. I just write down what type of film is in what holders after I finish loading.

    Blunders notwithstanding, I like Post-its, because they can follow the sheet after it leaves the holder to the lab order for work that goes out to the lab (which would just be E-6 in my case), and to the neg/transparency sleeve. If I'm traveling, though, it's usually easier to manage a notebook.

    I tried using Post-It notes on my film holders. After one long, hot, and humid trip, I got back to the darkroom and found all my Post-It notes in the bottom of my holder bag - big @##$@ help!

    Now I carry a bunch of elastic bands and a cheap notebook with rip-out pages.

    Hadn't tried exposing the Post-It note . . . maybe if coated with AgPlus . . .

    I am confused. If blueberry jam and honey is not good for tasteful photos then what is?

    I have started to use plastic baggies to hold the film holders after I load them with film and until I develop the film. I just fill out a 3x5 card and drop it in the bag and seal it up until I am ready to develop the film. I save the cards in a card file box. I record the film file number on the clear edge of the film and also on the 3x5 card. Thanks to AllenR for the idea as I was just not smart enough to think of this.

    Blueberry jam is nice, but not on the emulsion side. I used it to stick a sheet of 30x40cm technical film to the glass plate in the holder, but put the film backside out. Something strange happened where the emulsion came into contact with the jam...

    Ole, I am still trying to figure this out...

    The way you write this, had you only put the film in correctly, all would have been fine. Like perhaps the jam is a necessary part of the holder! What the heck was the jam doing in your holder in the first place! I can't come up with a good reason for this! LOL

    Well I guess if blueberry jam and honey is not good on the emulsion side then they are of very limited use as filters. So reading between the lines here I should do my smear before inserting it in the SFH.

    Well, blueberry is much better than raspberry, because it doesn't have as many seeds, and the peels in the orange marmelade can change the registration distance, requiring the groundglass to be shimmed with orange peels.
