This slide was made in 1984, stored in a binder and not touched for 30 years. There were “dust” spots caused by the plastic holder which I didn’t try to clean off on the slide but cleaned up with NX2 in PP. Amazing quality after 30 years with no color fading.
This digital image is from an Ektachrome 100 transparency from 1984. I used the NEX-5T with 55mm Micro-Nikkor close focus lens and pointed it at a lightbox about 6 inches away
From a very old slide. Edited in Live Picture and GKON. I think I used a 50mm f3.5 Elmar, as I have had that lens for 50 years. There were hours of work to get the apparent lighting right. The shadows on the original were bluish.
I decided that pre-processing the image in camera (sharp, contrast, color temp) is better than shooting RAW and fiddling with the conversion. PP in GKON and Snapseed to bring out the ambience and do spot dodging. Slide from 20 years ago.
This 30 year old slide had deteriorated in storage and the colors were faded. There was a ton of dust on the slide that wouldn't come off. I rescued it by converting to B&W, then cleaning up in NX2. The toning was added in Snapseed. You can see that the crew have dropped the chute way too early and have hauled in the main and jib while still sailing downwind. The spinnaker sheet has been loosened when it should have been pulled in under the boom, and the spinnaker is going into the water. It will cost them
Big Boat Series 1985. PP in NX2 to make the foreground greyish, and to clean up the dust caused by storing the slide for 30 years in a cheap plastic page. If I ever do slides again I will store them in boxes.
This picture is from a 30 year old Ektachrome (1984) which was stored in a three ring binder in a slide page. There is some dirt on it. I copied it using a micro-nikkor 55mm lens on a NEX-5T using a lightbox as a source.
