  1. Thanks, I was encouraged from a really early age Jowday, When I first got the opportunity to see a black and white print develop infront of my eyes in a darkroom at the age of 11 I was amazed. I collected some basic stuff and was developing my own negatives and printing from them at the age of 12. I have done a full circle really, started on negative film B&W then C41, professed to E6 positives, then in the 80's went Medium format 6 x 4.5 and 6x6 ending up with a Mamiya RZ6x7. Then in the early 2000's purchased a used 4x5 monorail and then a 10x8 field camera (still have these and use them today) then in 2003 purchased a brand new Nikon D100 DSLR, sold loads of my film kit including my FM2n and Olympus OM4 (LOVED the OM) then progressed into D600, D800 and recently purchased a really nice Used FM2n and OM4 again. Currently have two ETRSi bodies too. Film is making a serious comeback although will never compete with the mobile phone snapper masses. lol Enjoy whatever you do, be lucky you started later... my kids will have approx 5000 combined negatives and E6 slides to sort through including:- 35mm, 645, 6x6, 6x7, 4x5 and 10x8! ha ha Regards G www.grahamfurlonger.co.uk
  2. Hi Firstdefence, answers to your questions... 1. Never seen a positive print from this neg. 2. Yes, lots on this roll of negs had a light leak problem. (It was taken with my Fathers very old Balda folding 6x6 camera Circa 1950 3. Nope scanning procedure is perfect and repeatable. works very well on E6 and B&W negs. (Post comment) I have now found a way to do this very easily and posted it. Thanks for your help.
  3. I converted from PS and vowed never to return! Found a really quick way of doing it in Affinity Photo, and posted. Thanks Jowday for your input.
  4. ok, thank you for all your help. by accident I found a real easy way to do this... might be helpful for anyone else? I am not sure if it is the "correct" way, but it works for what I need and its quick! Select "colour picker tool" onto the film rebate, Select from main menu "LAYER" then "NEW FILL LAYER" change the layer options of this new fill layer to "Difference" Done! Just needed to play with the colour sliders in "Adjustments' and "Colour Balance" Done! Thanks everyone. PS I started photography at a very young age (5) here with a Coronet Flashmaster 120! (Circa 1950's) which I bought from a second hand shop with many weeks pocket money, LOL And here's the scanning setup I use.
  5. carl123, thank you so much for your time. I am still unsure how to do this myself? No one has come back and told me where the white balance can be found with the three eye droppers as explained in the photoshop tutorial, and although I very much appreciate your time Carl123, I still have no idea what you did to get to this photo. ....OK I give up. really cant believe its this much hard work getting a simple answer.
  6. Thank you, but where do I get the menu that displays the three eye dropper tools for black grey and white from? thanks.
  7. Thank you for all your help and posts BUT, no one has actually instructed me how to do this in Affinity Photo? please can I ask again, how do I do this (what would seem a simple task for photography software) in AF? thanks. Regards Graham. I cant believe its proving so illusive?
  8. Ive uploaded the Image which took considerable time, @DWright please can you tell me why that was necessary? Thanks. Regards G
  9. OK, thank you. I am still looking for some instructions on how to do this is Affinity please?
  10. Thank you for your advice but looking at all these posts they relate specifically to PS? I need some instructions please for Affinity Photo. Regards G
  11. Hi DWright, thanks for the response. Here is the scanned neg. I have included some of the film rebate on the left hand edge for colour match purposes. In another application I would have sampled the rebate colour, made a new fill layer with this colour, set blend mode to DIVIDE flatten layers and then clipped RGB B&W points to get in ball park then fine colour and other adjustments. I cannot find any mode for layers in AF which equates to "Divide"?? Thanks again. (PS I know the neg has been light leaked damaged at the top) Regards Graham. _DSC1698.tiff
  12. Need some help please and I will be specific. Scanning C41 Negatives using my Nikon D600/D800 with a Sigma 105 1:1 macro lens to produce 6 stitched images of 4x5 C41 negative. Scanning with fluid, AN glass and a sheet of optical mylar, the set up is as follows. light source, raised AN glass (frosted side up) layer of fluid, negative emulsion side up, fluid, optical mylar. DSLR shooting through the optical mylar and using live view highly magnified, focusing on the film grain. Lens at f8. file produced as RAW. The results are stunning and we have compared the results to an Epson V750 and I have sold the Epson. The questions is this; Using Affinity Photo (Mac) how do I convert the C41 to colour without the orange cast? I guess somewhere you need to sample the border strip and convert it from orange to blue as it is the base layer but other than this I have tried a few things and gone around in circles. Black and white and E6 positives are obviously easy and no problem but this Orange Cast..... Thank you very much for anyones time who replies. kind regard Graham.
