    Hello.

    Welcome from the Isle of Wight, England.

    I don't write down exposure information at the time but remember it when I process the film. In the envelope I keep the film in I write the date, location, camera details, processing details and exposure info. The exposure information is fairly vague though. Something like: "Mainly f8 @ 1/125" as I tend to use the whole roll in the same light at the same location and only occasionally vary the settings.


    Steve.

    Yeah, when I bother, I write it down in a little notebook and that's about 0.048% of the time. Welcome, Daivd.
    Thank you.

    Welcome from up north of you, near Vancouver, British Columbia.

    With respect to exposure information, I am often surprised how often I remember it. I think it is because deciding on exposure tends to be a thought process that I approach in a fairly consistent manner. I tend to remember what the light was like, and what I was aiming for, and the resulting exposure settings necessarily fall within a narrow range.

    I also make heavy use of "Sunny 16" as a reality check, so that may aid in the remembering as well.

    Thanks all. Basically, I'll just continue to keep a couple note cards in my camera bag to take notes on. I think I get so caught up in the moment of taking the pic, that it doesn't seem relevant to try and remember all the little details. Guess that is why I enjoy taking pics. Very freeing, relaxing and plain enjoyable. Can't wait to get out and do some more. Thanks again for all the insights.

    I should qualify that I write on the holders when I'm shooting LF because the information is useful in the darkroom. I shoot both sides of a holder for one shot. The information can (sometimes) help me decide how to adjust, if I don't like the first neg, or detect problems with my film, processing, procedure, or equipment.

    When I shoot roll film, I do nothing more than note how I have rated it, because what's done is done, as far as that roll is concerned.
