I’m kinda frustrated since the results I get are ranging from brilliant to super bad. I can’t quite figure out what’s the problem. But I’m sure it’s my fault since all your pictures come out so good!!
Also - NLP is the best!
First some Examples:
^That’s the photo I’m the most unhappy about - because I actually like it. The vignetting is so uneven that I can’t get any better results than that…
^The blue tint on the left.
^It’s subtle here but still there on the bottom.
And at the same time:
^Much better in a Photo taken literally minutes later in the same light.
Most frustrating is the fact that it doesn’t seem so bad at all from time to time:
As I move further away from the negative it seems to get better, but then I get super bad flares:
My scanning setup:
-Canon FD 100 F4 Macro with FD50 extension-ring to reach 1:1 magnification (that’s actually a ultra sharp lens)
-Dörr LT-2020 lighttable (with black tape for no illumination except for the negative)
-Manfrotto Befree GT XPro
My settings are:
-lighttable max power
-stopped down to F16 for less vignetting and sharper images ( )
-1/5th of a second shutter speed
-I scan mostly at night with no lights on except the light table!
I hope someone can identify my fault!
