    New from Spokane Wa

    Hello everyone!

    Thought I'd introduce myself. Name is David and live in North East Wa. Learned B/W in college. Spent 17 years in Papua New Guinea doing translation and literacy. New to the whole APUG site. So far I am very impressed with the pleasantness and way everyone responds. Seems like a fantastic community. Hoping to learn a lot from the forums and all the comments.

    One question someone may be able to answer.

    How do you keep track of all the fstop/shutter speed info for all your pics?

    I shoot mainly 35 but have a 2 1/4 as well. Do you just keep a notebook with you all the time? Any tricks to the trade on this? I take the pics but always forget the info.

    Starting school in Jan. (Chinese) so not sure how much I will be able to shoot, develop and scan. Only able to scan at this time until get an enlarger set up somewhere. I'll try to get more posted as I am able. Esp. some more 2 1/4 shots. it is an exciting format!

    Have a great day!!

    David

    I never write that stuff down. Never understood why it was important to record. My simple brain.

    But a notebook, or a Palm electronic gizmo, will do if you need to make note what you are doing in the field.

    I think shutter speed and f/stop publishing by photo magazines years ago made recording of exposure popular.

    Unless I'm shooting large format and need to know what type of development a negative needs when applying the zone system, where I simply have to note "normal - minus 1", "normal", "normal +1", "normal +2", or some variation on that theme, I don't write much down at all.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    Welcome from California. Enjoy Spokane, you'll end up missing it when you leave. Try to make contact with Bill Kostelec at Gonzaga U. He is part of a local photography club, good people. Grab a beer at Jack & Dans for me.

    Welcome from Utah. I write it on the holders, after exposure.

    Hi David and welcome from Seattle. I carry a notebook with me and usually jot down film/lens/exposure info. It's very useful to me when I'm reviewing negatives. I used to carry a small micro recorder but found that drew alot of attention.

    Best regards,

    Bob
