Scanning prints, negatives and slides - My first bulb photo
By a strange coincidence the first negative I tried to scan was the first photograph I deliberately took on the "bulb" setting specifically for the effect. I did not realise it was the first one until I went back and looked for others from this period of my life (adolescence).
I think I did a pretty good job on this in the end - it's hard to be sure because I cannot remember the correct colouring from that particular day. The point is I managed to get something that closely resembles the original print and improves on the quality.
Moon, Forestville, Feb 1976
To be honest I cannot remember exactly what I did to achieve the "final result". I certainly lightened the shadows and increased the red in the image (probably using the black and white points feature).
I was disappointed and frustrated with my next two attempts.
