    Well I'm still trying to figure out this file size crap, which is very confusing. So this is the only one I have right now. Not very exciting.

    pretty nice! are these done on Digital or scanned? I just started doing photography in class (B&W) in the darkrrom and such. I don't dig it much and I'm glad I only have it for 1 semester than I can carry on with my desired subject! (film!) I'm not too critical on photos, pretty much "nice" or "not nice" :p The second one is my fave! I'd even go so far as to say awesome!

    these are digital but taken with a 35 MM camera, they negatives are just scanned and the colors and cleanup is done on photoshop.

    Nice shots!

    What scanner are you using? I have been researching various neg. scanners and I am still unsure which to get. Your scans seem great, though.

    I'm not sure, it's the one here in the University art building computer room, so it's probably very expensive.

    My photos suck. I bury them deep in the cold ground. I definatly like them better minus the screwing around in photoshop. They are very good stock photos. If you build up enough photos like this, you might want to consider trying to get onto a stock agency.

    In case this is new to you, Stock photography... basically you take photos that look like ads but are fairly free of other products. You can't see any labels, etc. So the bottle one is a little iffy. But I could see your suicide guy being an ad for some kind of anti depressant or something... meh. Stock photography is weird...


    There is a hair on the bottle pic that is driving me nuts... fix it or... .... ... don't.

    that's actually not a hair, it's a part of the wall behind it. But it's driving me nuts too, I probbaly should have removed that before I turned this project in.

    My suggestion would be the Nikon Coolscans, whichever one fits your price range. They're great scanners. I've used them a lot and they work great. I personally think the Polaroid Sprintscans were better scanners, but I wouldn't suggest buying anything (I haven't looked to see if they were still available) from a company in Chapter 11. Don't buy into the flatbed scanners that can also do film. You're FAR better off with a dedicated film scanner if you're spending less than say $4-5k. That said, some of the dual lens models like the Microtek i900 does a damn good job. I had my boss buy one so he could do some lower end film scanning for stuff they can't wait for me to do.

    Thanks for the info. I haven't looked at the Nikons yet.
