Photography and whatever

New Film Scanner!


I finally purchased a film scanner!

This baby you see here is a Konica Minolta Dimage Scan Dual IV.

I have wanted a film scanner for a long time. I no longer have access to a darkroom, so all my prints are made by someone else (usually a machine). And frankly, the idea of scanning machine prints and trying to make them look OK in Photoshop makes me kind of sick. I would much rather scan the negative or slide directly.

I’m hoping this will encourage me to shoot film more often.

Anyway, as soon as it arrives, I will scan some of my old negatives and post the results here for your amusement.
