In my last post, I hoped to start posting some of the images I had scanned from some of my older trips (pre-DSLR). Well, I'm afraid I still don't have any ready to post but I have made a LOT of progress as far as scanning goes. Through lots of trial and error, research, and a book I bought for my iPad about using VueScan I have refined the scanning process and I'm really excited about the results I'm seeing. I keep expanding the scope of this project and if my patience doesn't wear out I suspect I will end of scanning ALL the negatives I have from my travels, and maybe even the family stuff. It's amazing what you can do with a photo with Photoshop or Lightroom if I have a good sharp raw scan at 4000 dpi and 14 bits of color depth to work with. So photos that looked only so-so on the 4x6 prints from Kodak have a whole new life after a little editing. I pretty much just have to keep feeding the scanner every 10 or 15 minutes with a little extra work to lock in the color balance and exposure at the beginning of each roll. Looks like there's a lot of good stuff in there so hopefully it will be worth the effort when I start post processing some of them. So far I've scanned almost 3000 negatives and created about 400GB of new data!
