Film Photographer's PhotoMemo Book - TWINPACK
The Film Photographer's PhotoMemo Book is one of the most useful items you can have in your camera bag. Each double-page spread is designed to give you all the space and prompts that you need to make notes on a single roll of film: brand and type, ISO, exposure settings, which camera you used, what you wanted to achieve.
This means that when the film comes back from developing you have the perfect comparison to learn and improve in your film photography! What you liked, what worked, and also what didn't.
The twinpack has two books enclosed for twice the analogue adventuring.
The PhotoMemo Book is one of the amazing designs we have sourced from our friend Mike over at ShootFilmCo. Read our interview with him here!
The twinpack contains two separate PhotoMemo Books. Each book is 48 pages = room for notes on 23 separate rolls of film.
Cover: 100 lb. Neenah ENVIRONMENT Desert Storm (30% post consumer fiber). Interior: 60 lb. Finch Opaque Smooth Text (acid-free, archival quality).
Honestly I'm so pleased I bought these. I really wanted a means of writing down how I've shot rolls through my fm3a, how I liked certain emulsions & what labs I've used. Sure I could have done that on my phone or even a normal notepad but there's something a bit special about these. Something that pleases the organised mind.
I bought these on a whim but am so glad I did. I'm still only scribbling my way through my first one but it is coming in so handy - especially when trying out new films. Perfect size for slipping into a pocket and well layed-out inside with two pages for each film.
Highly recommended to have in your camera bag.
Such a simple idea, yet so so useful.
Each double page spread gives you a pre laid out form to list any details that you need to remember from a roll of film. For example the date, the film stock, the camera used, did you push or pull? the subject, the ISO...
Under that you can then write whatever notes you like to help you remember the things that you just know you're gonna forget. I personally use mine extensively for pinhole. The camera and film combo. The metered exposure time. The subject...
Yes I could use a notes app on my phone, but this sits in my camera bag, with me knowing that its not going to randomly corrupt, crash, or anything stupid like that.
Highly, highly recommended.
Oh and at £10 for a pack of two, why wouldn't you at least try them?!
This is great for when you’re out and about shooting, it’s small and thin enough to slide into your bag!
Wish I knew about this when I went fully back to film photography! Fab books, pocket sized, good sections to write in.
