View Full Version : Cutting Negs
This may seem a bit nit picky...but I get about 37 shots per roll and when I cut them into strips of 5 to fit 7 rows into my PrintFile sleeves leaving me with 2 frames left over... is there a way to avoid this? How do you cut yours?
Just shoot a round 36 shots... I understand trying to squeeze out the 2 more, but if you dont have any place to put them, what good does that do?
Thats my suggestion O.o
I use this same print file page and have come up with a fix that works for me. I start cutting from the last frame- be it 36, 37 or 38. Cut my strips of 5 till I get to the beginning of the roll- then I cut that last strip to the same length as a five frame strip- note my roll number on the blank area and place this into a page reserved for 'tails' when that page is full it gets proofed. The original roll number gives me a reference to any notes on the film, but the page of tails gets it's own number in the negative book.
I store my negs in sheets with 10 sleeves of 4 negs.
I know, 6 negs together would fit on paper to get contact prints but I never make contact prints anyway.
I never cut negatives. They are rolled and stored in film canisters with the reference number written on the canister.
