There’s a Spot on Your Dress

I’ve been away from my film scanner for a few months and I have been recently reunited with it. I am happy about that. This is Michelle at her wedding in October and when I sent out the film they did a scan for me as well. When you let a machine scan for you, it just runs on auto and you get what you get.. If you want a decent image scan, then you are just going to have to do it yourself. You will always get a better file with more range and there is just something nice about doing it yourself. Scanning takes patience and practice, but you tend to love what you are doing when you stay with an image from start to finish.

What is Bokeh

What is bokeh?
From wikipedia: [In photography, bokeh is the
aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an
image produced by a lens. Bokeh has been defined as “the way the lens
renders out-of-focus points of light”.]

I have mentioned the
new-to-me camera I just picked up at Goodwill. I just love the swirly
bokeh this mid seventies Japanese screw-mount lens makes.
