I'm just about to embark on the latest round of scanning, finishing off the collection of work from my Northumberland trip. As ever, it's a mixture of 35mm, 120 roll film and 4x5 sheets. Black and white and colour. Negative and positive. A job that will probably occupy me all evening - just as well I don't need to go to work tomorrow.
The problem I've got with all this film is organizing the originals. Once it's scanned it' fine - number it all and drop it right into my regular electronic filing system. Problem is, I'm now swimming in mixed formats of film and have no system for keeping it all in order.
Anyone out there solved this problem? I'm looking for a relatively simple system (otherwise my lazy nature will take over and it won't get done) that will enable me to keep it all organized. Hopefully I can go back and organize all my old stuff, too. right now, it's all stacking up in odd corners which will become a nightmare once I move house.
I need help!
