A few before and after film scans.
How much processing goes into your scans?
I’m often asked about how much (if any) processing goes into my film scans. The answer is generally not much -sometimes people believe you, & other times they don’t, the truth is very little processing can be done to a 16bit Tif scan of a colour transparency.
The RAW digital scan never looks as good as the film on the light box so a few adjustments are made, for me this includes;
- Colour Balance (applying a film base colour);
- Minor adjustments to Saturation and Contrast.
Below are some before & after examples.
All images below were captured using my Fotoman 617 Film Camera with Fuji Velvia 50 Slide Film. Use your mouse to slide between the before & after images.
