A simple way to catalog your film, so you can distinguish the ones you’ve already shot from the ones which you haven’t shot yet, adding some short information about them.
This method will help you to bring all your film in one single pocket, without separating the ones you pull out from your camera from the virgin ones…
What do you need??
- Marking Pen;
- Masking Tape: so you can write on it.
- Obviously your rolls, with their canisters.
- Take all your “virgin rolls”.
- Attach a little strip of Masking Tape on them.
- Write with a fine Marking Pen some information (I’m used to write the kind of film, in order to know what kind of film it is without opening the canister).
- Leave an empty space in the strip, because you will fill it only when you finish to shoot that roll. Once you finish one roll, write a number in the empty space, respecting the order.
- All canisters with the number contain roll that have been already shot, while canisters without the number are the “virgin ones”…
- With this method you can easily and rapidly see the order of your rolls.
