Currently I shoot 5x5 negatives (actually ~55m, quadratic) with a Nikon D750 on a Kaiser slimlite plano with 5000K.
I shoot two pictures per negative, then stitch them together in Lightroom. After that I apply NLP, is that the correct workflow or is the other way better?
I tried shooting 4 pictures per negative, but Lightroom makes it very hard to stitch them comfortably, so this is a time consuming process.
Next, I can’t seem to recreate the colors when inverting. NLP worked perfectly with 35mm negatives. Especially with blue colors.
Here is a very simple invert using Windows easy-of-access settings:
While the picture looks washed out, as expected, the sky seems blue.
The same with Noritsu, 5% border, default saturation, Auto-Color Neutral:
Looks somewhat more cyan, but changing some colors I couldn’t get it “right”.
It doesn’t need to be perfect, just good enough. This is more an archival process (or backup).
