First Scan In A Long Time

TODO: Pull subtitle into page object

It's a little wild to see an image from so much earlier in my photographic journey. It's kinda cool though.

The scan looks pretty solid. The scanner is slow though. If I'm going to do this, I'll probably get a newer one (assuming those do faster). I'm looking at one of the Epson ones that does medium format negs too.

Maybe this will get me back into shooting a little too.

First Scan In A Long Time

R.E.M. came up in the headphones yesterday. It got
me thinking about an image I shot of Michael Stipe
during a show in the 90s. I know I have a 
scan of it on a hard drive somewhere. I just have no
current idea of where that is. Figured I'd pull
out the scanner and make a new copy.

Finding that image will take some time. I've got the 
scanner working though. It's an old Nikon Coolscan V ED. 
I'm using VueScan for the software. What's nice about
that is I bought an unlimited upgrades license in 2012.

Sure enough, they honored the license. I installed it and 
fired right up. After flipping through a couple pages of negs 
this image popped out as a decent one to use for a
first test. It's probably from the late 80s or early 90s.

When I got it, it was top of the line. It's been a while,
but it's held up alright
