Is there a section for film shooters?

In 2001, I bought a Nikon CoolScan IV (LS-40) to scan a bunch of negatives I had from when I lived in Scotland in the early 1990’s. I started scanning a few, but the only post-processing SW I had was Photoshop LE, and later Elements 2.0, and I didn’t really know how to use them so I gave up.

I’ve become more proficient with Lightroom over the past couple of years, so I recently gave it another shot, the negatives now being 24-25 years old. I’m pleased with the results overall. I struggled with exposures and metering there because the sky was always bright overcast and the everything else was in shadow and I didn’t have the experience to know how to deal with it. I was often disappointed with the prints that came back from the labs. Now, 25 years later, I can use Lightroom to correct exposures, tone down the highlights, and pull out details from the shadows that I always suspected were in there.

This is Castle Stalker, perhaps more popularly known as Castle AAAAAARRRRRRRRGH. All that water is reflecting the bright overcast sky, so the negative is underexposed and everything that’s not water was dark shadow in the original print. This was taken with a Canon EOS 100 (Elan in North America) and 100-300 f/4.5-5.6 USM lens on Fuji Super HG 400.

And just because I'm allowed to attach two pics to this post, here's a "Highland Coo". This was taken with my old Canon AV-1 and FD 50mm f/1.8 lens, before I bought the EOS 100, on cheap Price Club branded 200 speed film (probably made by Konica).

These look great!

Yes, post-processing is a big part of scanning.

I miss film. I miss slide film, specifically. There's nothing like looking at a back-lit slide. The image just pops! I should find a battery for my old Elan 7, and go take some photos. Do they still make Velvia 50? I scanned these with a Minolta Scan Dual IV, if I remember the name correctly. I still have it tucked away in a cupboard. It worked quite well! These two were both taken in Bali, Indonesia in the early 2000s. They're all I have ready access to right now.

I miss Velvia, and I miss the relaxation that comes from making Cibachrome prints in the darkroom!

Buy a BP-300 and use AA batteries.
