5505 DIY film scanning
Sup lads,

Anyone scan their own film? I get my 120 developed at Jessops because of their student discount, but their scans are absolutely atrocious.

Anyone have any preferred methods of DIY film scanning? I have a Digital SLR and extension tubes, but it's just lighting and keeping the film flat.

Picture is one of their scans, and I'll attach a scan I tried with my phone as the backlight just for comparison.

Get yourself an old manual-focus macro lens and a light table off eBay, then follow this tutorial. If you take your time and use a half-decent lens, you'll get results comparable to a high-end drum scan.

https://petapixel.com/2012/12/24/how-to-scan-your-film-using-a-digital-camera-and-macro-lens/

I'd also suggest developing your own film. A basic kit costs about £60, but it'll pay for itself after about 10 rolls. It gives you a lot more flexibility and control, especially if you're using cheap film that's past its expiry date.

Thanks lad. I was thinking of building my own light table, but you can get them for a tenner off ebay anyway, so that's tempting. I will think about the macro lens but I already have a set of extension tubes and there seems to be a decent amount of resolution with my 50mm at f/8, and I suppose I could go even closer and stitch them together.

With regards to film developing, I don't really have access to a dark enough room.

You need a darkroom for making prints, but you don't need one to develop film. All the developing happens inside an opaque plastic cylinder. To load the film into the developing cylinder, you use a changing bag - an opaque black cloth bag with two elasticated holes for your hands. There's a bit of a knack to it, but it's not nearly as difficult as you might imagine. A film changing bag costs about £15 and is handy for all sorts of other tasks.

Look at as many other things as possible, save things that interest you and look at them again later. Spend as much time as possible creating stuff (even though much of it will never be used). Never wait for inspiration or motivation before starting, just start.

Speaking of which, I was doing some diagrams on adobe illustrator, and I was too lazy making some basic shapes, so I found a library with thousands of stock .svg / .eps format shapes, you can download them for free but it says "you MUST credit the creator", ummm.... yeah, ok, sure thing.

You get the impulse to create art at unexpected times during the day. Follow that urge, then you store away that little nugget of creation into your palette. You can then recall these little nuggets when you need them. You won't ever have a 'complete' palette of what you think you need, but you don't need to have one; people enjoy the unique combination of artistic insight that your work will bring.

There's an original Rolf Harris painting on eBay for £2.20, which I'm considering bidding on while everyone else is put off BT him being a filthy noncecase.

Anyone involved in GD?

I don't care whether it's professional, amateur, or just for fun.

I do it for fun/amateur - primarily helping friends with small things here and there. I've won a competition, and got fucked over by another - but overall it's a pretty fulfilling creative outlet.

For the professionals, any tips in getting a decent foothold? Meaning, getting better and having an eye for things?

You don't have to showcase anything, but any example work would be appreciated.

It's all very nice footage but lacks the narrative and explanation you'd expect from a travel video.

Both, particularly the Berlin one, reminded me of BBC footage where Rosie and Jim or someone have just gone to a new place and it's showing you around before they go to the factory where they show you how something is made. I think the music didn't help.

Anyone else into calligraphy? Share your work and tips.

This is a close up of something I did today. I do Tibetan Uchen (big head) script using bamboo pens and ink or special calligraphy felt tip type pens. The latter make it more feasible to do different font sizes without faffing about with tip changing.

I plan to experiment with doing the same type of work but using paintbrushes and a less rigid semi Japanese approach.

I went on holiday over the weekend and did a massive tour of the Scottish Highlands, 628 miles in total, and I took loads of photos of hills and stuff I thought some of you might like.

If you're interested in the route I took I can post that too if you like.

To say I'm an amateur photographer would be to overestimate my skills, but I think they turned out OK considering. All taken on a Sony Alpha Nex-3, which I read was a good bridge.
