I usually avoid any manipulation, even cropping... I usually look at the slide and get the scanned version to match in terms of colour... most of the time I edit the saturation and sharpness...
Also levels to get any unwanted casts added by scanning...
woah i wish i owned a D70 ! ! :jump:
I just got myself a Panasonic Lumix FZ5 digital camera purely to learn on and to better myself at photography as a hobby.
I've explored a little architecture and street photography but not much and im pretty much open to anything to learn on.
can see when my work load eases down from tech and can organise a days outing somewhere intresting
i also have a Praktica super TL 1000 slr with a 50mm lens but films rather expensive to learn on so i dont use it much for now.
Something i really want to get into is skateboarding and bmx'ing photography, i always bought mags and just admired the photos of the overseas dudes they are too inspiring
