Scanning Negatives and Slides: Digitizing Your Photographic Archives
Scanning Negatives and Slides: Digitizing Your Photographic Archives
Many photographers have either moved into digital photography exclusively or use both analog and digital media in their work. In either case, there is sure to be an archive of slides and negatives that cannot be directly integrated into the new digital workflow, nor can it be archived in a digital format. Increasingly, photographers are trying to bridge this gap with the use of high-performance film scanners.

In this 2nd edition, you will learn how to achieve the best possible digital image from a negative or a slide, and how to build a workflow to make this process efficient, repeatable, and reliable. The author uses Nikon's film scanners, but all steps can easily be accomplished while using a different scanner. The most common software tools for scanning (SilverFast, VueScan, NikonScan) are not only covered extensively in the book, but trial versions are also provided on a DVD, which also contains other useful tools for image editing, as well as numerous sample scans.

Polaroid Amigo 620
Polaroid Amigo 620
Posting up my camera collection. Unless otherwise noted, all work and are cameras I use. 1980s integral film Polaroid. Not the finest piece of photographic equipment, but it's been in the family since new. Biggest downside is the ruinously expensive, unreliable Impossible Project film (can definitely be interesting, but you're also definitely a beta tester). Pack film for the '60s Polaroid 101 is much, much, much cheaper, much, much, much more reliable, and that camera takes better photos anyway. Still, has that Polaroid '80s charm. Want to get an SX-70 one day.

The lack of cash and access to the most basic photographic equipment made me think about a way to go back to film on a budget. this was the result. It?s no stock photo quality but it came out with nice colours and suitable for web publishing. The photos where shot with a Dirkon paper camera. so I just spent on this project one for the film and two for the developing of the negative.

Barns of Minnesota (Minnesota Byways)
Minnesota's barns are remarkable testaments to a midwestern way of life, one centered on the land, work, family, ingenuity, and perseverance. Many think of barns as breathtaking landmarks along the byways. Others have their favorite barns--the well-kept, red dairy barn near St. Cloud, the faded horse barn on the way to Faribault. Still others know these structures more intimately: barns are as integral to their lives as family and home. In Barns of Minnesota, photographer Doug Ohman showcases the vast array of these exceptional landmarks, built by hand in wood, stone, brick, or metal and dating back as far as 1880. Where Ohman's photographs capture the beauty of the barn from the outside in, Will Weaver's evocative story illuminates the life of the barn from the inside out. Readers witness the making and breaking of one barn as it plays into the life and sustenance of several generations of one family who settled the land in 1922 and who farmed into the age of agribusiness. Seventy-five stunning color photographs accompanied by Weaver's moving story uplift these beautiful buildings and a way of life on the land that is as strong and proud, as fragile and humble, as the barns among us.
