I hear that word used a lot... Workflow... and I hear a lot of people asking scanner questions. For about the last week I have been looking into all of it. I don't know if anyone cares how it goes, but just in case I thought I would explain how I plan to flow the work. To begin with I have the luxury of choosing what work I do. Not may people who are contemplating hanging out a sign can say that. I realize how fortunate I am. I can do jobs that fit my workflow rather than trying to make the flow fit the job. Lets assume I go back to shooting the same kinds of weddings I shot eight years ago. When I was training my son and law and we needed to work every weekend to get him ready. ...THE PLAN...SATURDAY AFTER THE WEDDING... Five rolls, four of them 24 exposure film. Typically my part of a 2pm sat wedding is done by no later than five p.m. That's what the basic package calls for so lets assume that is true. Drop the film off for development only at 5:30... return at 6:30 to check the negs... I usually shoot no more than five rolls. One of those is a 12 exp 400 speed for the balcony or back of the church shots. Then probably four more rolls of the real deal. SUNDAY BEGIN WORKING THE FILM.. Scan the film as negative scans. Two clicks per scan. As they work I can make a nuisance of myself here between clicks. I think I can probably get the negs all scanned by midday monday at the latest. (I tried scanning as positives but they are just to shakey that way) So Monday after noon I can run them though my negative program not from the scanner. For the most part it is a one click program to do several functions. I think I can finish that on Tuesday. From what I can see, for my taste, i need to do a batch increase of the contrast about ten percent. And a series of rotations in a batch type enviornment. That all might go into wed. All the while I'll be bugging you guys. I also have to make a very low res copy to email to the Bride. So I should have my hundred shots ready to email to the bride by Wednesday. Now just have to wait to see if it works in real life like it does on paper. I doubt that it will. But I have been working to see how it goes.
