YO! Who has shot film? What do you do to preserve your film history? Do you scan your best shots? I’m curious what your process is. For the last 20+ years I’ve worked so hard to scan and organize my film shoots. At first I started scanning the best of the best. I began when digital started and my goal was to scan the best shots for safety. It was a lot, but so worth it.
As time went on I started scanning what I call the “B+” shots. What I discovered was I have a lot of great images I forgot about. I call those my Hidden Gems. Every time I pull a file from the past and look through the proof sheets, negs or chromes I find something special. The memories come flooding back and I smile! I can NOT believe that I’ve been shooting for over 50 years now.
I will keep gong through my past shoots and scanning what I can. It’s such a process, but I love it. The history of my life in photos is never dull. I just have to say my scanner is getting a serious workout. I wish I had some help! Any volunteers?
