If you haven’t taken the time to make a contact sheet, you should. They are worth their weight in gold. Many people think the contact sheet is used to select your best photograph to edit or enlarge, but I also think contacts teach you something about your approach to photographs and time behind the camera. The contact sheet lets you see how your vision unfolds and how the world you experience through the viewfinder says something about you. In this week’s podcast, we dive in to the value of making and using contacts sheets to better understand not just the great images you might make, but all the images you make.
As always, I hope you and yours are safe, and please remember to keep safe and wear your mask.
