    I designed an exposure log that I fill out for each film holder and put it in the zip-lock bag with the holder when I'm done. It has the usual info plus filter factor, bellows factor and adjusted exp. I also note how I want to develop the negative. On the back are reciprosity corrections for several films.

    I keep two.

    The spiral "reporter's" notebook in the camera bag for local stuff - where I record anything relevant about the shoot - names, times, etc.

    For road trips, the general journal book - a sewn black and white school composition book - goes in the bag. It catches any photo info from each day as I shoot. Each night on the road I sit down and journal in the events of the day so that by the end of a trip I have a daily diary that includes not only the photo info but all the other notable details of the trip.

    Yes, though it typically is used for jotting down notes of what I just shot, instead of how I shot it.

    One of my biggest uses of photography is documenting the native plants of my ecoregion, and if I'm on a native plants hike of an area I'm unfamiliar with, I'll jot down the exposure and roll numbers of unfamiliar species.

    I"m pretty good about keeping notes for my LF work. I usually will jot notes on scrap paper while out shooting, then will transfer to the book once I'm back at car/home. One image per page. I note date, place, film, f-stop, shutter speed, ISO, filters, light conditions, anything else that seems pertinent. I also make a little sketch and/or description of the image so it is easier to match up the negative as it comes out of the tank or tray with the correct information. I also take the notebook into the darkroom with me and note film development info and then add my printing info as well. I used to keep darkroom notes in a separate book, but find it easier to refer back if I have all the info about a particular image in one place. The bad images end up with alot of white space, but with a good image I will end up using the whole page as I note different printing attempts, lith or pd/pt maybe.
    MF and 35mm work - I occaisionally make notes while shooting. I write development info on the neg sleeve, and keep printing info on the back of the contact sheet, which I keep in a 8 1/2x11 sleeve next to the negs.

    I keep records of exposures - aperture, shutter speed, filtration, lens, etc. Also, because I usually try to meter the contrast range of the image, I also note the expected processing - N, N-1, N-2, N+1, etc. I only do this for 4x5 since that's the only place where I have the ability to use the information to make decisions about processing. I also note the subject, date and time of day, and sometimes a potential title in the event a final print is ever made.

    After processing the film, that information is transferred to a record sheet that eventually is filed with a proof sheet. That record sheet also has space for making notes about how I print the negative.

    Likewise I keep a reporter's notebooks, but I use them for all of my shoots, 35mm-LF. I record film type,who what, where, when, I add expsoure data to LF and sometimes MF, I keep one notebook in each bag. I tied to keep more comperhensive "logs", but not just in my nature.

    If I am out shooting with multiple rolls of film and don't want to get confused about which ones have been completely exposed while I am out and once I return home, I prepare a full page of Avery labels where each one simply reads "done". Then, when I finish shooting a roll in the field, I simply pull off one "done" label and affix it to the plastic film container so that I don't end up reinserting a finished roll in my camera. I also do this because my Leica R8 is set to not automatically rewind film rolls completely back into the canisters so that I can trim the end before developing the rolls. This simple habit is a blessing!
