As photographers we often need to keep notes of things and be able to refer back to them easily. I have just discovered two things that can help with this and thought that you might like to know about them.
The first is for the “techy” generation who possess iphones. It is a neat application called Awesome Note. It is available for £2.39 or there is a very good Lite version, which is free but limited to 7 notes. They are perfect for photographers, as you can combine the notes with a to-do list, customise the look, add icons and folders and best of all, add photo attachments – much better than the notes app that comes pre-installed.
The second solution is for the “pen and paper brigade”. I know that there are many people who still prefer this method and for them, a good sturdy, compact notebook is a godsend. In this case, the answer might be a Moleskine book. Although the pages are fixed in, the quality and versatility is a bit like Filofax. They come as notebooks in a variety of sizes and with different types of ruling. They also come as diaries and city guides. A piece of elastic holds the pages together and there is a useful pocket in the back for loose bits of paper. You can check this out at http://www.moleskine.com
