Or, did it ever go out of style? I literally ran out of PrintFile sleeves last night, after developing and archiving two more rolls. Very odd that the pages hold 35 exposures (7 rows of 5 exposure strips), yet, we’re basically dealing with 24 or 36 exposure rolls. Great way to sell more packs of PrintFiles! Seriously, these materials have been around forever, and is a time proven way to protect your negatives. They even make them for 4X5 and 5×7 large format shooters, and slide buffs!
Found this shot in a recent PrintFile sleeve- Clinton, MA, downtown. A nice little town it is. Was trying to test exposure here, but thought I’d post it up-
Even “throwaway” shots can come back, and find use. Keep them all in PrintFile’s, and label meticulously, using “analog” EXIF data on the sheets. Makes things very easy to find. I use a red Sharpie, and also mark right on the sheet exposures I have already scanned, and those special “money” shots. Back to the camera shop today for more PrintFiles.
