Isn’t it wonderful that we have proof sheets to study?

With the digital age, proof sheets are not used much nowadays. For me, I usually trash everything that is not a keeper. Although I do have a master record on the original SD cards which I use as film.

I used to think Frank’s elevator girl was a candid until I saw the proof sheet. Same thing with Elliot Erwitt’s bulldog…


Digital photogs can still make proof sheets. Here is a ‘how to’ on it.
