    Exposure Record

    Before my negatives get out of control as in not organized, and getting my butt in gear with keeping exposure records, this is the method so far. It will span over 3 sleeves in a three ring binder. The first sleeve will be my print file of my negs, second sleeve will be the contact print and third will be my exposure record. The attached PDF is the form that I just created about an hour ago. Constructive criticism is welcomed. Also, you are more then welcome to use this form to your benefit.

    The next system on my list is how to keep a print record.

    You can probably directly 3 hole punch your contact sheet.

    I assume you mean a contact sheet, rather than individual contact prints.

    I'd think a column for which lens you used would be helpful.

    Yes, contact sheet.

    I didnt think of adding a lens option due the only lenses I have are 50mm for my two bodies, a 2.0 for my k1000 and 1.4 for my ElanII. That could be a notes item.

    You will find that information of this nature will most likely be of most value some time after you record it.

    Trust us, you will be at least tempted to build your lens collection . And when you do, you will appreciate having a space to record it.

    You may as well include a spot to record the lens as well. And the approximate focal length too (for any zoom lens you may acquire).

    You would also need a section to record what camera you used. It'll help to troubleshoot problems should that happen in the future.

    You'll definitely need some way to know which film this sheet of record ties to. Things like this has a tendency to get mixed up. It may be clear now but 10 years later, you may not be able to tell.

    Are you sure you can keep this up? It's a lot of work to have this kind of record for every frame of every roll. I don't doubt this is great idea. I just don't know if this is practical.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    TK, I do have a spot for the camera used. At the bottom, there is a spot "body" for what camera body was used.

    Eddie, the Exposure comp is exposure compensation "EV".

    Included is both a spot for both Film type with native ISO and shot ISO. An example would be: Film and ISO/ HP5+ Shot ISO/ 1600
    The roll spot is for my numbering system: year, month, day roll, Frame

    I'd put the information you put on the bottom up on top. When you're scrolling through a binder, it will be easier to find.
    I'd also add your developer/development time/temperature/ N, +1, -1, etc. information to that top line.
