Hope everyone has been enjoying what I’ve been posting! Andrew and I finally got a scanner so we can produce film work more frequently. The Epson V600 is pretty awesome and cost around $200. Sounds steep but if you think about it, each roll of film costs around $10 (not including processing which is another $8) to get scanned at the photo lab. Twenty rolls and the scanner has already bought itself.
I just learned how to scan myself, so sorry for the sloppiness. I found out real fast that I need an air blower and some gloves because finger prints and dust doesn’t always look cool, especially on black and white. You can scan both 35mm and medium format. Andrew will do a more in-depth review on the scanner soon.
So my first scan was the roll from my art show a few months back. I used a Canon A-1 with a flash, so it’s a bit grainy and oddly lit.
That art show actually turned out to be a big success – sold half my stuff.
I’m happy to say that I got confirmation to FINALLY graduate Towson. After six years of working on my bachelor’s degree I think it’s safe to say that I’m finished. Even more exciting is the fact that I was accepted into Corcoran School of Art + Design’s Photojournalism Master’s program this upcoming fall! It’s really crazy because it feels like just last semester I was creating this blog for my homework assignment. It’s almost been TWO YEARS since then. How does that happen? I hate to say it but old people are right – you blink and time really does fly by.

Love this…….enjoyed the photos……but, cannot believe you posted the bra pic on here! It was a fabulous art show! I had a great time! Congrats on getting into Corcoran School of Art…in DC!
Thank you! And that photo of you is my favorite photo of all time I think. I love it 😀
Love the photos. There is just something so real & pure about B&W film.
Yeah, Nan lololololol
Ihave a question about the epson, have you tried scanning colour film in? im from perth in Australia and unfortunately it costs a fortune to develop and buy the film here as it is not that common of use, i just graduated university, so unfortunately the benefits i once had at uni have disappeared and i am now going broke, so i would be interested in investing in a good printer that scans well, thanks 🙂 love your blog
Yes I have! If you look at the post I did about Bonnaroo you’ll see color photos and those film scans were done with the Epson v600. Renders beautifully. It costs a lot to develop and scan stateside as well, so the scanner is definitely worth it because it will save you a lot of money in the future 🙂
Thanks for sharing this. It cost me US$13-15 to scan a roll and the size is only 3000 x 2000 at 72 dpi so I’ve been tinkering with the idea of buying a scanner. Good to hear that the v600 scans well!
Awesome! And yep, that’s why we got one. Already saved so much money on scanning alone.
