New Scanner

This afternoon, my new scanner arrived. It's an Epson 3170 Photo scanner, and has carriers for 35mm and medium formats. At a price of $64 and free shipping, it's an amazing value. This is the first scan that I did -- a shot from 2003 in the Bisti Badlands in NW New Mexico. Camera was my Kiev 60 Medium format SLR, and it's going to be fun scanning in a bunch of negatives. The scanner is a "factory refurbished" model... so it ought to be well-checked out.

Nice photo. It reminds me of home, growing up near Farmington New Mexico and southern Utah. I have the same scanner and have been quite happy so far. I am still figuring out how to run all of the features but it is quite nice. Now, I just need to figure out Photoshop and I will be set. Looking forward to more scans.

Scanning can be so time consuming - but it can also be a labor of love.
