    I understand what you're saying, but can't completely agree. In my case, note taking can improve the creative process. It's just one more opportunity to assess my decisions. In fact, I probably do it for this reason more than any other. Sheet film shooting is inherently slow to begin with. The note taking is the quickest part of the process. I view it like a pilot going through a pre-flight checklist. They already know how to fly, but going through the checklist (or taking notes) is usually a positive thing.

    Where did you get these sheets? That's quite clever! I'm finding that while in the field, I'm attempting to write down details about each shot, but this takes time and it is annoying when it's 15 degrees (which it is here is PA today!).

    That said, I find it to be vital to learning precisely what happens with what exposure settings. Any other advice would be welcome.

    Thanks!

In the notes section of the sleeve, I also note developer type, dilution, time and temperature.
    Wow this is a great idea!!!

It takes practically no time to do........I find that notes not only help diagnose problems but they also reinforce what went right on those occasions too.
    What kind of analog guy are you?? Shooting an recording with DIGITAL devices... Get a stenographers recording machine already, go buy some recordable tape cassettes and bring that along! Or be ostracized by the community!

    Taking notes at shooting

    Personally I only note when I need to push or pull a roll. The 120 rolls don't have a lot of room for notes (which is really annoying honestly I don't need to know its FUJI FUJI FUJI in a million places, and Ilford isn't much better using some plastic tape that is hard to write on. Kodak is the only one who gets it at all, sadly it's too expensive and I mostly shoot Fuji and Ilford.... Tmax is cheaper right now so I have some of that but that's it....

    I used to "take notes" when I shot 35mm because my 1V has downloadable data sheets for EVERYTHING which is great, but I never use any of it. I'm sure if I publish I'll regret not having details about the shot but I find it all very distracting from the art making process. I can't understand why newer cameras (Mamiya 7, fuji 680, or whatever its called, systems, etc) don't have some sort of downloadable data just stored in the camera, I mean anything with an AE function has to communicate to the lens/shutter etc, knows the shot/selected ASA speed, can't that all be downloaded easily? My canon 1V can hold about 300 ROLLS of data and they stopped making them in 2001.... The Mamiya is newer than that...

    My other gripe is the MF stuff doesn't have water sealing/dust sealing body/lenses and those are the ones who need it for all the crazy extremes we go into with them...

    Sheesh!

    Sorry, I'm a tangent go-er....

    I think CPorter is right. There is nothing about making notes that hinders the creative process.
