Scanning Film Negatives with a DSLR. Well, lets just say I've gotten better at this over the last couple of years.

Scanning Film Negatives with a DSLR

The left image was one of the first I've "scanned" with my DSLR, and the one on the right I've just rescanned using the techniques described below (higher resolution available here). Right now I can get higher resolution and better image quality that what street labs give you on CD. I've seen many articles on the web explaining the basics of digitising film negatives or transparencies with a digital camera. The basics are quite simple: you take a photo of a negative into a light source and invert. That's it.

The random volume disconnects and volumes missing as choices from the Located Referenced Masters screen don't seem to have any logical basis--the only explanation is some sort of bug with volume identification. So... I took out a wicked big hammer and fixed the Aperture library directly. I found the needed bread crumbs here: les-volume/ Using a utility for editing SQLite databases, I directly reset the volume UUID for all of the referenced masters in the library to match the one "working" test image I imported. It took about 15 minutes, including downloading an SQL editor and backing up the library.

But what can you do about it? You can contact an attorney for assistance. But if you haven’t registered your photo in advance of the infringement, then you won’t be eligible for statutory damages.

Future chapters will cover capture, workflow and advanced HDR techniques. For now, enjoy this exclusive first part of what we hope will develop into a useful manual for anyone interested in getting more of the dynamic range they see in the scenes they photograph into the images and prints they produce. We asked Uwe to give us a brief introduction to this series of articles: "We've been looking into HDR photography Since 2002.
