#072; Pink, White, and Blue

I've been singularly unproductive recently, but have been spending a little time going through some of my negatives now that I have a new film holder for my flatbed scanner. Film likes to curl, and newly-developed film often has a very strong arch to it that can take it out of a scanner's depth of field. Scanning negatives that are older, have been stored flat, and using a holder with a glass plate gives much sharper results.

Compare this photo with its earlier incarnation to see what a difference in sharpness it can make.

The tones are also different, but that's just me going for a less pastel look now that the petals are crisper.

I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.

This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
