The Contact Sheet

April 16, 2008


One of the most wonderful things in the world is the contact sheet. As a photographer you know you can’t run from your contact sheets. You have 36 images, or 16, or 12, or 8 depending on what film or format, and when you place these sheets out before you, your entire process is there for anyone to see.
If you ever get a chance to look at the contact sheets of one of the masters, by all means, take advantage. You can learn as much or more from the images they did NOT choose than from the ones they did.
