i am so clever

Getting negs scanned is an expensive bitch, and scanning them myself is a waste of my life (plus, I have to do it at school because I dont have a neg scanner at home D: )

..but alas! I have found the perfect solution! After a bit of kanoodling on deviantart, I found out that a few people had been putting their negatives against a lightbulb and then photographing them. I gave it a try and it works! After inverting on photoshop and doing some serious colour correction that is...

Also, the quality is really quite poor, but one can't afford to be too fussy when working with such primitive equipment.

This here is an old roll of 35mm Kodak Gold shot with a Holga. You might recognise some of these shots already since I was able to scan a few of them before I was distracted by something shiny.

Yay, photos are fun!
