Portraits in the Woods

In a bit of a departure from my usual style of photography, I recently had the opportunity to do some family portraits.  It wasn’t that great a departure, though, as it was done in and around the woods at a local park, and not in studio conditions.

My Film Scanning Success

In a recent post I mentioned that I would be getting a scanner specifically to scan film.   I ordered it online and it arrived a couple days later, which, happily, was much quicker than I had been anticipating. As soon as I set it up I put it through it’s paces on two rolls of film I recently developed. One in 6×9 format, from the Ensign, and the other 6×6′ from the Hasselblad.
