Screenshot of my film stock sheet
Here's how I keep track of my ever growing film stock. It's actually pretty simple. I haven't always done this, but 6 months - or so - ago I decided that I wanted to keep track of my ever growing film stock. So I didn't keep buying film I already had plenty of in...

Loose thoughts: Does photo-paper have to be stored cold like film?

I bought some photo-paper, for a pinhole camera, and I stored it in the fridge. But because of space shortage - one can never have too much film, I guess - I started thinking if it was even necessary to keep the paper in there. In a refrigerator or in a freezer. I asked my two local film pushers shops,...

I looked around the internet for an answer, but didn't really find any. So I turned to the...
