The Bird Feeder

February 14, 2012

So, my negatives just came back from the lab, exciting stuff :-) Unfortunately my scanner doesn’t  seem to like them as it adds a colour cast to every scan. I know it’s not the negatives fault (I tried the old, put the negatives against the light trick) so I need to figure out how to sort it. I think I found a solution for now but it’s a bit of a cheat :-) Until then, I suppose it shall suffice… (Click on picture to enlarge)

    Great shot fella. I like how the woman’s face is obscured by the umbrella, making sure the pigeons stay the focus of the image :-)

    Don’t worry about the cast, you’ll get it with every colour image. It just needs correcting that’s all. The colour film is (normally) balanced for midday sun so a cloudy day will need some warming up as it will have a cooler colour temp. The base colour of the emulsion changes from film to film so that too will create a cast! Just correct during the scan if possible, else it’s to be done in the editing software.

    The pigeon in the foreground really makes this one, nice timing!

    Thanks for the scanning tips Matt. A couple of months ago I scanned a Porta 160 film and the colours where perfect out of the scan without adjustments.
