The not so definitive Guide to Scanning Film

The not so definitive Guide to Scanning Film

… on an Epson V700 scanner.

This guide is meant to be a starting point to someone starting out scanning negatives or slides themselves in 2019.

I do advise you up front to get in touch with a lab and build a relationship with them. A great scan from a professional photo lab will always blow away the quality of a flatbed scanner. That being said if you scan at home you can control the colours the way you want it and handle the film as you wish.

I have used Vuescan, Silverfast and Epson Scan in the past. In the end I settled on Epson Scan. It just seems to work for me. And as usual in photography finding something that works for you and develop it, refining it more and more is key.

First off if you wish to get the optimum sharpness from your scans I advise you to do the following:

Vernissage Merging Munich

On the 6th December 2018 my series Merging Munich was unveiled at Gerhard Meir Salon.

It was an exciting evening with interesting people who all came to the centre of Munich to have a look at my unusual visions of this city.

As this series deals with images that are visions or seem like a dream, I was intrigued by the interpretations the visitors had about my work. One woman told me that the image Monopteros [Winter] (2016) reminded her of a memory of her adolescence, spending the night in this spot.

I am happy to say that a few images are already sold and are inspiring people in their homes on a daily basis.

If you missed the Vernissage and would like a tour of the images, get in touch!

And if you enjoy Vernissages, there is talk of a Finissage - leave me a message if you want to receive an invitation.

Paris - Festival des Idées de la Sorbonne

Im November 2018 wurde mein Bild “La Ruelle” in Paris gezeigt.

Im Rahmen des Festival des Idées (veranstaltet von der Sorbonne Universität) zeigte das Projekt “Fear in the City” Bilder die Menschen mit Angst in der Stadt in Verbindung bringen. Es wurden gedruckte Bilder in der Gallery EP7 gezeigt. Aber auch außen an der Fassade der Gallerie wurden Bilder auf riesigen LED Panels gezeigt.

Mein Bild La Ruelle könnt Ihr unten links im Bild sehen.

Paris war sehr aufregend, nicht nur, dass das Bild in dieser Stadt so zentral gezeigt wurde. Es war auch besonders, weil meine Familie hier früher gelebt hat und ich an meinem Projekt “Demi/Halb” arbeiten konnte.
