Picked up a slide/negative scanner at Brookstone. The iConvert scans at 3600 dpi at the highest and is extremely portable. It’s a small gray box whose application took a while to install but once it installed successfully, it was pretty much smooth sailing. The only exception was the one time crash, that I hope is really only a once in a lifetime thing. Anyways, here I am getting nostalgic again.
Below are negative scans from 1995 of my photo classmate Ann. Filters were used in the last 3 shots of her. I can’t remember, but I think they were just blue cooling filters. Below Ann’s images are slide scans of a model, Vey, I did in a collaboration with my make-up artist friend Isaac Prado in 2002. Vey’s images were shot with Kodak Portra 400 VC, shot at 100, then cross processed (stop rolling your eyes =P) and pushed 3 stops. The retouch was done through I-Photo, not my favorite application, but at least it’s something.
I’m loving this scanner, it’s quick and small and was $99 +tax and very easy to use. I haven’t looked at the images at 100% yet because I don’t have Photoshop (Santa didn’t come through for me on this one), but works fine for web images.
Happy New Year!
