Photo fun

LA Skyline with clouds, prolly from Oxy bldg. roof

So, we’re hoping to recover a little of the ‘dark time’ that disappeared last weekend, with Linda in Chicago, and spend some time working on photography this weekend. One project is to get my 1970s portfolios online (in glorious black and white), which is also an experiment with Google apps. I’ll be building a micro-stock site, but also thinking about putting up reviews and tutorials as podcasts and/or words-and-pictures stories. I’m using Lightroom to manage various scans et al., and experimenting with using the Lumix DMC FZ50 as a copy camera (more on that in a bit). Learning this stuff can be fun… pic above is the LA skyline some 30+ years ago, likely shot from the roof of the Occidental Building…

    I’ll be watching with interest. Been thinking again lately of getting a scanner to digitize all my old slides and negs. Maybe it would even inspire me to pick up an old-fashioned 35mm SLR again. Or maybe not. Any recommendations for an inexpensive scanner that delivers quality results gratefully accepted!

    Here’s the most recent version of the scanner that did most of the scans you see here… it’s $50 new on Amazon:

    Scanners have gotten better and cheaper… the scanner that comes with my Canon ink jet printer is a very good 300 dpi machine for something that’s basically free.
