Old Film Negatives
Sometimes I only have a half ab hour or just a few minutes and rather than waster that time, I like to have something in the background, some older project maybe, to pick away at. Recently, I went through a binder of black & white negatives from the early Eighties, scanning anything I thought was worth keeping. Only after the scanning does the real work begin - the processing of the digitized negatives. I processed all the film myself and even though I used to hang the drying film in a home made cabinet, the delicate film was always subject to various atmospheric conditions, both exterior and interior. If there was a window open on a windy day or if someone opened a door too briskly, this could cause enough movement in the air to cause little airborne bits to settle on the sticky film. Working on the digital files so many years later, all theses little artifacts have to be painstakingly removed.
