Scanned 5x4 film & upcoming exhibition

Along Arumpo Road Circa 1996
Dunes outside Beechworth circa 1996
Looking towards Broken Hill circa 1996 
Seventh Street, Mildura circa 1996
I had these images scanned by Image Science in North Melbourne recently. They have done an excellent job. I could never had imagined these scanned so well. In addition I am now able to exhibit them.

Until scanning them I was reluctant to make prints especially on large and expensive appear as these images often have defects undetectable on a contact print. Once enlarged of course the defects too are enlarged. Removal of these kinds of defects was never something I learned at college.

Scanning the negs and retouching them using digital tools like photoshop bring these pictures back to life. Given the cheap price of the scans, I may now use this workflow to make large prints of my older 5x4 negatives, for future exhibitions.
