Light Reading Hinohara Obaa-chan July 20, 2003 Dirk 3 Comments Click image for larger version. Related posts and articles on Japan Exposures: Photos from Nezu/Yanaka This is my first serious attempt scanning medium format film, using my new scanner. I haven’t touched the camera in...
nice one Dirk. the b/w looks so crisp. does this mean the Finance Minister approved the scanner appropriations bill?
Haha, yes Kurt! I meant to write about the new acquisition, which actually happened last weekend, but it took some time to set up everything. Besides it’s not such a glamourous item, like some other tech toys, which as a down-to-earth guy I am quite happy about.
I haven’t scanned for a long time, especially transparencies. Some results (colour) are disppointing, but that’s because I haven’t looked into the Art of Scanning yet. I hope we can talk about that when we meet next time!
Anyway, as for photos, watch this space!
one of the reasons (shh, don’t tell anyone) that pushed me back to b/w was the frustration with scanning color. It’s just never right, and seems to require hours in PHotoshop tweaking all sorts of little things. At any rate, yeah, we should talk about it sometime.
