Street food, Marrakesh, Morocco, 1997
Pentax Z-1p with smc PENTAX-FA* 1:2 24mm IF AL, Kodak Ektacolor Pro Gold 400 (GPY) film
Negative copied using Pentax K-1 with smc Pentax-D FA 50mm Macro




I have now pretty much sorted out my K-1 film copy workflow. The Pixel Shift mode makes a real difference. Raw conversion is a critical step: a more or less linear (that is, very low contrast) and neutral reproduction works best, with subsequent colour and contrast adjustment using Curves in Photoshop. With its deep shadows and bright reflections, this negative uses all of the available dynamic range of the Kodak EPY 400 film. Despite the added challenge of the colour mask, the K-1 is able reproduce it without difficulties.

Looks like the color and contrast are well balanced. From opening to saving out a positive, on average, how long does it take for your workflow? Can it be automated? Color and contrast only as I am sure spotting the image for dust and scratches are another matter altogether. TIA.

Looks good. How do you manage the orange mask?

That's not easy to answer, for several reasons. (1) I'm still in experimentation rather than routine mode. (2) I'm developing workflows for an digital data archive project at the University of Vienna. My ambition is to get the best possible results this side of expensive drum scans so I spend quite some time exploring alternatives (we also use a Flextight X-1 and a Nikon Super Coolscan LS-9000 ED) and tweaking the scans. Once I know what can be done we can determine what level of attention we can afford in daily routine. (3) I have mostly scanned difficult material such as faded slides (a colour restoration sample is in my Flickr stream).

That said, I try to use standard settings in Camera Raw and global correction curves for colour. This works best with batches of similar slides or negs, such as a complete film. In that case, it takes me quite some time to optimize the settings for the first image but the rest is only a few minutes for each shot (except with very variable lighting conditions). I will write up a detailed description of the process later.

I set my white balance for neutral blacks (the orange film base) in ACR and use Curves in Photoshop for neutral highlights. Then I correct the midtones as needed, again using Curves. In most cases the resulting per-channel curves are non-linear.

It is very blue indeed! Provia seems to bring out blues very well...
