Making a Basic Contact Sheet

Contact sheets are a great way to review and record your images. They allow you to view all the negatives on a roll of film before deciding which ones you want to print and how you may want to crop them. They also provide a permanent record of those negatives for filing purposes.

There is nothing quite like the magic of seeing your first print appear in the tray. If you have always wanted to learn how to make a black and white print in the darkroom, then this is the perfect video for you.
