    Yes. If someone is described as photogenic, they would be considered to look good in photographs... or photographs well as you put it. It's not limited to people though. A place can be photogenic too.

    [QUOTE=cmo;1328206]Many years ago I was on an assignment for a newspaper, three short appointments in the morning and one longer shooting in the afternoon, all black and white. Around lunchtime I had a portrait session, and I rewound the film, but not completely into the cartridge, but I remembered I had taken 21 shots. Then I used a color film and when I was ready I switched back to black and white.

    I was in a hurry.

    Just imagine what I forgot.

    Since that day at the age of 21 I always wind the film completely back into the cartridge or use a felt pen immediately to write on the leader how many shots were used, but I try to avoid taking film out of the camera and in again.

    If you think that it's hard to open the cartridges in the darkroom get a cartridge opener like these:

    Yes, but as previously said, leaving a bit of leader out, means I can cut this off and start loading the spiral in daylight without having to bother with a leader extractor.

    Opening the 35mm cartridge:

    For reusable snap-cap cartridges I usually just push the protruding end of the spool down on the table while holding the outer cylinder and the top pops off at the opposite end.

    For crimped single-use cartridges, I used to use an ordinary bottle opener, until I got this serious German 35mm cartridge opener (see photo attached).

    I rewind and leave the leader out. I then cut the leader off with scissors, put the film into a changing bag and pop the top, then load onto the spiral. I do it this way because I don't like having scissors in my changing bag, I cut the bag once and myself once.

    I rewind all the way into the cassette.

    While I'm out and about, I mark the outside of the cassette with a roll sequence number for the day, so that I can match it with my negative log later on. When I get home and complete the negative log, the roll is assigned a catalog number which is added to the cassette. Later, when I have enough rolls to develop, the catalog number ends up as well in a darkroom log where I record the "recipe" used for each developing run, so if there's any question about the resulting negatives I can always go back and determine how they were processed.

    In the darkroom, I open the cassette with a simple bottle/can opener that I bought for 19 cents about 30 years ago - the most cost-effective investment I've ever made in photo gear. I think it might cost 49 cents if I needed to replace it today.

    If the leader is still sticking out, I bend over the last 10mm of the leader so it has a defined crease in it. I then roll the leader back into the canister until the only thing sticking out is the crimped film.

    Otherwise I just roll it in all the way (usually by mistake!)

    The easiest way for me to tell them apart is that the unexposed rolls are the rolls going into the camera, and exposed rolls are the rolls being removed from the camera. So, to remember . . . it's IN = Unexposed, OUT = Exposed. Keeping rolls separated outside of the camera might present a challenge for some. In that scenario . . . the exposed film can be recognized by the images that form during development. You really shouldn't see those images with unexposed film . . . unless you left your camera unattended at the party.
