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.
