Morning Cruise

First things first, my scanner was originally purchased to be a copier/printer for my homeschooling needs. The scanner was an added bonus to be able to send photos to the grandmas via e-mail. Then I built a freewebs page to share lots of photos, and now this little blog thingy I’m into. So, as a copier and printer, it does just fine for about $100 – give or take. As a scanner, it blows. I know that. Some day, I’ll get one of those way-cool negative scanners, but for now, this is it. I had my choice for my anniversary gift last month between this and the Sigma 170-500 zoom. I chose the lens. My photography will last much longer than this blog will, I presume. Therefore, I apologize for the awful line that runs through my dark photos when scanned. I’ve not posted many because of this fault. It’s not TOO bad on today’s photo, though.

Hope everyone had a great weekend. We hit above 80 yesterday, and it will be warmer today. Back to cooler temps on Tuesday, and cold by the weekend. Going to enjoy today while we can.

The sun had barely risen, and they were coming in from a morning out on the Bay. This photo was actually difficult for me to shoot. I had the lens pulled all the way out to 300mm. I was shooting with ISO 100 (wasn’t planning any action shots), the lighting was low, and the boat was moving fast. I only took two photos, as I didn’t think I’d have much luck. This one worked well enough.

Micki, really nice shot. Even with my Epson Perfection 4490 PHOTO scanner, I still do a lot of post editing. Dust spots, banding, and such. Thats why I'm having so much fun shooting digital .Have you considered having a CD made from your negatives? Maybe even use one of those online developers like Snapfish. Cheap and easy. Your pictures are good and worth sharing with the rest of the world.

When I get film developed, not too often these days, I always get a disc run off in case I want to use any images for the web; expensive though if your shooting film mainly. I guess I’m lucky in that respect that I don’t have to go through the rigmarole of scanning. Nice flick today, you’ve caught the rising sun well and the returning fishermen are an added bonus.

Despite your scanner it's very appealing and has an extremely serene nature to it. As if the day is ending and there's a open fire and a hot cuppa waiting.

Micki i'm not going to evangelize digital photography here, but if you have the tenacity to set up a darkroom and master all the chemical know-hows, learning photoshop shouldn't be hard for you at all. :)

Micki, you don't have to sacn your pix, though this one is really beautiful. I never scan any more. When I get my film processed I have the images put on a disc and transfer them to the computer later. i almost never get prints anymore. The digital images are always available and also easy to work with in Photoshop.

Again, wonderful picture!

They usually are jpg of low res on the disc 700kbs for a 35mm frame. I turn them into tiff and pump the res to 300 dpi in Photoshop for about 3.5megs per image.

Way cheaper than prints and a lot less clutter. When I want a print, I make one.
