    Thanks. How do I scan them? With my fingers crossed. I use a flatbed scanner, so you never know what you’ll get.

    Thanks for the nice comment! I just started blogging in January and am loving it. It’s a perfect forum for photographers. I like your work very much. My favorites are the Williamsburg Horse (the placement of the gold blinder really makes it work) and the Paradise Valley shot (great light and color). I’m impressed that you are working with film. Once you scan it in it becomes digital right? Do you do anything in Photoshop?

    Teresa – Thanks. Yeah, I prefer black and white, actually.

    Mary – I flattered. Thank you.

    Denise – Thank you. I do some tweaking in Photoshop, but not much. It depends on the film. I have a flatbed scanner that only occasionally does what I ask it to do. It’s not bad with black and white film (good thing I prefer black and white), but it’s awful with slides. The scan for the Colonial Horse slide came out decent, but you should see the original slide. It’s amazing.

    Anyway, you should give film a try. Might like it. Might pull your hair out, too.

    Amber – Thank you. I remember when I first looked at this slide – I was amazed. Definitely one of my favorite shots.

    Bubbles – The light and colors were just right. Thanks.

    I just love the different details packed into this frame – the blinder, the rope, even the hoof. Just amazing.

    Diane – Thank you. The right was nice that day.

    Terry – That’s the main reason I like this shot – I was able to get so many interesting details in the frame. Thanks for noticing.

    I love this photograph! Love the vivid colors and all of the lines/shapes in the horse head dressing which are visually stimulating. Where do you have the film printed? or do you do it yourself? I have a bathroom darkroom, but I have been shooting digital only and I am not impressed with local film color labs…or do you scan and heighten color in photoshop?

    Holly – I get my film processed with Richmond Camera, which always delivers professional results. Unfortunately, I scan the film myself. I have a flatbed scanner I occasionally feel the urge to destroy with a big hammer. The above scan was of a slide; it came out pretty decent, I guess (although my scanner often struggles with slide film). I actually didn’t do much to this slide in Photoshop, maybe up the contrast a tad.

    Anyway, I greatly appreciate your comment.
