Film Photography Recording Insert

As some of you might know I've been a keen amateur photographer for a number of years... decades even! For over 10 years now I've been using digital photography as my main method of capturing images. Prior to that and since being a teenager I have used film for all my photography.

Over the years I've owned a number of different film cameras, I still own a few of them from a Kodak Instamatic 25 camera to a more recent Canon EOS 30 Single Lens Reflex (SLR) film camera.

My use of film has dropped dramatically over time, but I have maintained an interest in it on an occasional basis.

Like a lot of other analogue things (planners included!) there has been a resurgence in people wanting to go back to using film photography, in the same way that there has been an increase in the number of LP vinyl records sold in the last few years.

I decided that this year I should do some more film photography. It is quite a challenge after using digital photography with the benefits of instantly being able to see your results.

To help with my understanding of the results of the pictures I hope to take this year I decided I needed to record the details of the photographs I take so I can look back and see the settings I had used.

One of the very first Filofax inserts I created/recreated was the Photography Exposure Record, I had some of these old Filofax inserts from the 1980's but they are no longer available.

Having used my own version I decided that there were a couple of things I could do to improve on the original version.

1980's Photo Exposure Record insert

Like the original I decided to do it in Personal size because this is very easy to carry around in my camera bag and it lends it self well for note taking whilst out and about. I also kept it in landscape format so that the rings don't get in the way, even less so in a slimline organiser. In the photos it is in a Holborn, but I also have a Finsbury which has smaller rings.

Original version at the top and the new version below

The reverse side is the same format, printed on to Filofax Plain paper
I'm sharing these inserts with you so if there any of you that are film photographers then you can use them too.

Photo Insert to be printed on Personal size paper: Word or PDF
Photo Insert to be printed on Personal on A4 sized paper: Word or PDF

Of course I could have used a smart phone app, or a simple notebook, but where is the fun in that!

Free For All Friday No 432 by Laurie

One of the many joys of using a Filofax or similar ring binder is being able to have other things in your planner besides just planner/ diary pages.

I have loads of random things in my Filofax. On my dividers I have taped post cards of my favorite locations (Glen Coe and Rannoch Moor). It's like taking a mini vacation every time I turn my pages!

I also have a printed page of photos of oystercatcher birds. I love these charming little birds. This time of year they come inland and nest in the fields around my house. I love their loud PEEP! call. Seeing them in my planner just makes me happy.

I like having fun things like these in my planner so it's not all business and to-dos.

What do you have in your ring binder that's there just for fun?

And as always on Fridays, feel free to ask and/ or discuss anything ring-binder related!
