Okay.. I've been shooting prints for over 1 year now. Almost 100% of it being Kodak Gold 100 or 200. Up to this past Christmas I would use a flatbed to scan 4x6 prints but I received a negative scanner, so now I'm scanning the negatives. But heres the problem I recently encountered on some of my negatives that I never had a problem with on print scans:
(not the best photo, just a good example of the streaks)
It seems most apparent with darker pics- but on some it doesn't show up at all .. I did some searching on the forums and it seems as if this could be caused by poor developing? Is there any way to clean the negative to rid this problem? Or am I stuck with many "ruined" images that only have hope with the dodge/burn tools in PS?
I have been looking into slide films lately and shot off a roll of K64. No streaks at all, from the same scanner. Now I see why Mr. Pries loves K64 so much (consistant) .. Currently I have a roll of Velvia 50 in my camera- gonna try and limit it to ramp/low-action shots though since my lense isn't very fast! I'm just trying to experiment with some of the "good stuff" as I'm ready for a switch!
thanks for any help,
