This is my set up and process for ‘scanning’ negatives. That is making positive, digital copies of pictures from film negatives.
The usual way of doing this is using a scanner. But – unless you have a zillion-pound, wet-mount drum scanner – you’ll probably be using a flatbed scanner. I haven’t had any joy getting good results out of a flatbed.
I get much better results using a digital camera, a tripod, a light pad and a homemade negative holder. I process the scans in Lightroom and Photoshop. (They are photos of negatives, not scans as such, but I’m going to call them scans.)
My new book (well, more of a zine), City and Flowers.
Photos of a city (Birmingham) and flowers (roses, carnations, gerbera, and others) taken with an ONDU pinhole camera.
