Putting Together an Exposure Log
Start off the exposure log by putting a location for the photographers name and the name of the project or assignment. This is going to be slightly different for different project types, so if it is for a journalistic assignment you will want to list the client or employer as well. If it is a fine art photo project then the name may be sufficient. From here you may want to include other bits of information that will augment the other two pieces, such as contact information, the approximate number of photos desired, and maybe even the information about the camera you are shooting with.
Below this heading is where the bulk of the exposure log will be. This will be a basic column table where you are going to have indicated rows for individual pictures. Start with a column that states Exposure Number at the top and a string of sequential numbers moving downward. To the right of this you will put a column with the heading Subject, which is where you will essentially put what you photographed in said exposure.
Next, you are going to want to put a column to list the type of lenses you used in this exposure log. If you used the same lens the whole way through then you will really only have to list it once and not on each row. After this, you will need columns for the F-Stop and shutter speed, respectively. You are going to list both for each individual shot you take, and you may even want to create an individual column for the ISO if you plan on changing it quite a bit.
You will then want to create a column for Date, but only if you are shooting this project over multiple dates. If you are shooting it all on the same date then you will just want to list this in the heading of the exposure log. Finally, you will want a column for the time you took the photos and you will list this for each individual exposure. If you forgot to get any of this information when you were shooting you can usually take it from the photo's metadata in a program like Adobe Photoshop.
