The pictures came out a LOT better than I thought, but I still have a LOT to do to really get this whole photography thing going again. First, I need to really clean my camera. There were a lot of artifacts all over the scans, and I feel that part of it was due to some dust I have seen on the mirror and lens. Secondly, I need to find a ‘better’ way to get digital prints of my film.
We took them to the Ritz Camera on Broad St. near Parham Road. We had them just develop the film and put them on to a CD, I did not get any actual prints. Well, about 10 of the prints have SO much noise on them they are almost useless to me. The others have random scanning artifacts on them. There were some BEAUTIFUL shots I would like to put up…but they look terrible on the computer. Id really like to hear what type of experiences people have had converting their film to digital, and what is the best way to do it.
I took 5 of the best (in composition that then had least amount of noise) from the roll and cleaned them up a little in Photoshop, fixed the levels, etc. Please check them out on Flickr and let me know what you think!
