I took over 60 rolls of film this summer(and 5000+ photos on the sd cards also in the picture). Lots of color,slide and of coarse black and white 35mm and medium format film! It was a lot of fun but now the daunting task of cleaning, scanning and organizing all these photos. Don’t get me wrong, I love to shoot film and even developing it, but I just don’t care for scanning and doing dark room prints. It takes a lot of time and patience to get good clean scans and prints, and I feel like that could be time for taking pictures or something more fun than sitting listening to a scanner. I was recommended something today that might make me find film scanning less annoying, the Pakon F135+ scanner. Hopefully I can get one and test it out, but for now I’m using a canon canoscan 9000F mark ii and it does a good job just takes a long time. The Pakon I believe only does 35mm but at a much faster rate and with more realistic color and grain.
On another note my Lightroom library is now 50000 photos and counting! Just noticed that today. I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing but it is a milestone, and over 1000 of those are film photos!
Over the next few months I’ll be scanning and hopefully uploading some photos here and on Instagram (@sukikattephoto) that I just started.
