Scanning modern living, part 2 (GIF!)
In the recent post, “Scanning modern living," we detailed our process for creating digital surrogates via scanning. The EPSON Expression 10000XL scanners that we use came with a variety of accessories to make the digitization of visual material easier. The top image shows a sleeve of photographic 35mm slides of color landscape photographs taken by photographer Alan Ward, with some of the slides moved to the slide-holder accessory for scanning. This accessory makes it possible to easily scan 15 slides at a time - essential when there are hundreds in the collection!
And to give you a glimpse at some of Alan Ward’s 35mm slides, we have created our first GIF! Inspired by the University of Iowa Special Collection Tumblr, we hope to experiment a bit more with this medium in future posts.
