Welcome back to Little Things Thursday! I loved everyone’s blog post last week. I took so much encouragement from your shares! Thanks for that!
I’ve got a few more film shares from our fall mountain get-away. One thing we like to do on trips is drive off the beaten path. We saw this road and decided to detour…mainly because we saw a huge flock/gaggle of turkeys in a field.
I really liked the color in these in spite of the steady rain that fell all that day. And I love the way the light reflected in these wet mountain roads. One of you asked last week if film scans are editable. Yes, you can edit film scans, but I find that with a great developer/lab that it is rarely needed. I usually just edit blemishes, under eye circles, and that sort of thing. Your lab will work with you to get the look you like and there are a couple scanners that can give you varying results. I indicate my scanner of choice (Noritsu here) and whether I like my images cooler/warmer/neutral, how I like my mid-tones, and how I like my contrast. This saves so much time in achieving your look. Of course, the type of film you use plays a huge role in getting those looks so you need to have that in mind before loading the film. Again, this is Portra 400. Our beach trip last month was all Ektar 100 for punchy colors.
I hope you guys are all having a great start to your holiday season! Let’s see how it is going!
