I found this quiet holiday period being a good time for organising a way of storing my plates, (finally !).
So far I was keeping some of them in empty sheet film boxes, lying flat one on another, divided with sheet of paper, some in boxes with racks, (which where actually constructed for transporting plates taken on location), or everywhere around in my studio (getting dusty) . Generally - a little mess, but the main problem is the fact that this type of storage capabilities actually ended.
So I decided to orgainise it a little bit and
1. I'm wrapping glass plates with an acid free thin paper,
2. putting them in separate, standard, envelops,
3. labeling with information like: type of glass, title/subject, type of varnish, year, camera and lens, portrait/landscape/still life,
4. then packing them vertically and tightly into boxes with lids :
Happy New Year everyone!!!
