Argus C3 Photography

Tangled undergrowth

I tried to boost the contrast as I have done with others in this set, but did not like the results at all. I was going to dump it. Then I looked back at the original negative scan and decided I rather liked it.

Looking north by the south end of Eastman Lake, just a bit past where I took the earlier one of the reeds.

I tried to boost the contrast as I have done with others in this set, but did not like the results at all. I was going to dump it. Then I looked back at the original negative scan and decided I rather liked it. Other than dust cleanup, the first image is exactly as scanned.

My good wife suggested some gentle tweaks. I think I like this version (the second image) better. Yay, wife!

Scanning remains the most important part of the editing process. I scan each negative individually so I can tweak the settings as necessary.
