Here are some of my tips to help you get started in organizing your Lomo stuff.
Well, I’ve been collecting quite a few cameras, film spools, negatives and canisters over the years of shooting film. I decided to take action to organize them before it gets too much to handle.
Here are some tips for keeping your camera and photo stuff organized.
1. Use durable containers
Keep all your camera stuff, unused film and flash accessories in a large plastic container. Also throw in some of those silica gel packs inside to prevent moisture from building up. For cameras that I always use, I placed them on a shelf that’s easily accessible and in view.
If you’re into black and white developing, place all your chemicals and other paraphernalia (such as changing bag and tank) in another container.
2. Label everything
It’s good to put labels so that you’d know what’s inside of the containers. I also labeled all of my processed films with those little sticky notes indicating what camera I used.
3. Store your negatives properly
Since I’m organizing film negatives for three people (me, my brother and my fiance). I decided it’s best to keep track of them by putting them into individual film negative sleeves for easy archival. I also labeled them indicating the shooter, the film and the camera used.
