The beauty of natural light


I just love natural light, this was part of bridal lingerie story for Elegant Bride Magazine. Just gorgeous north light and lots of big reflectors and a fan.

  3. Richard,

    If you don't mind my asking, what is your workflow for scanning C-41 negs? It seems like a never-ending journey for me. For me Nikon Scan 4.0.2 on my 9000 gets it bang on in "negative" mode a large percentage of the time but it doesn't always leave as much shadow tail as I like. I have spent a time with an ImageMagick script called "negfix8" and also with the ColorPerfect plugins. Lately, I have even resorted to inverting directly with the "Curves" panel in PhotoLine and I am even experimenting with a workflow from a batch of Photoshop actions called "DonzRGBActions". I like the results but I'm looking for something more consistent and less labour-intensive.

    I'd love to see an article on whatever you do since clearly it works well!
