Your film & print archive has value as a source of income, a portfolio of your work, and as a historic and personal record. Just learning how to digitize your archive is often a source of confusion and misinformation. Eric Luden, digitization expert, founder and CEO of Digital Silver Imaging, will demonstrate their state-of-the-art digitization system at PHSNE’s Zoom virtual meeting Sunday, March 6, 2022 at 7:30PM. (Magnum photographer Elliott Erwitt at a DSI negative scanning session;  above)

Luden will touch on the merits of a variety of digitization approaches, such as:

  • Scanning, drum scans, and direct image capture
  • Scanning / image capture do’s and don’ts
  • File format choices
  • Digital file storage
  • Archival considerations

A Q&A will follow the presentation.
