Scanning The Past: More Local Music Shows

By Luke T. Bush

After digitally scanning more negatives -- this time B&W -- I hate film more than ever.

As with color negs I had to photo-edit out spots and dust threads even though I had carefully stored them in plastic sleeves.  Apparently the person I paid to process the exposed negs had a problem: I found large brown splotches on some of the images.  Additional time spent photo-editing out more defects.  And to get decent quality to share online I still had to spend tedious hours scanning, slow steam engine technology.

I don't know why colleges still teach photography with film.  It's like training someone how to drive a car by instructing them on how to use a horse and buggy.

Fuck film forever.
