Hope everyone has been enjoying what I’ve been posting! Andrew and I finally got a scanner so we can produce film work more frequently. The Epson V600 is pretty awesome and cost around $200. Sounds steep but if you think about it, each roll of film costs around $10 (not including processing which is another $8) to get scanned at the photo lab. Twenty rolls and the scanner has already bought itself.
I just learned how to scan myself, so sorry for the sloppiness. I found out real fast that I need an air blower and some gloves because finger prints and dust doesn’t always look cool, especially on black and white. You can scan both 35mm and medium format. Andrew will do a more in-depth review on the scanner soon.
So my first scan was the roll from my art show a few months back. I used a Canon A-1 with a flash, so it’s a bit grainy and oddly lit.
That art show actually turned out to be a big success – sold half my stuff.
I’m happy to say that I got confirmation to FINALLY graduate Towson. After six years of working on my bachelor’s degree I think it’s safe to say that I’m finished. Even more exciting is the fact that I was accepted into Corcoran School of Art + Design’s Photojournalism Master’s program this upcoming fall! It’s really crazy because it feels like just last semester I was creating this blog for my homework assignment. It’s almost been TWO YEARS since then. How does that happen? I hate to say it but old people are right – you blink and time really does fly by.
