@Digitizer I’ll try that and report back. Thanks for the suggestion.
I did try taking a shot of a blank strip of negative. I didn’t notice any vignetting or uneven backlighting of the lightpad.
A. Yeah, I taped over the rest of the lightpad with black electrical tape, only leaving a window big enough for the negative.
B. I work in a mostly dark room. There’s a small amount of ambient light that seeps through between the black-out curtains I have on my window. I can’t imagine it’s enough to cause a reflection though.
I wonder if the lightpad is giving off enough light to illuminate objects around my desk (maybe even my shirt?) in turn causing reflections.
I was thinking about creating some sort of tube or box with non-reflective material to place between the negative and the lens… Good idea or bad idea?
I know it’s not a light leak in my camera as I had the same roll scanned by a lab for comparison.
