About the Photos
We use six different cameras for picture taking:
1. Nikon F5 - takes pictures on 35mm film. We mostly use an Angénieux zoom lens 28-70 mm - 1:2,8.
2. Nikon Pronea S for APS film - a lightweight system camera with exchangeable lenses. Most Nikon lenses fit this camera
3. Canon IXUS for APS film - a very small camera that we use when other film cameras are to heavy or too bulky to transport.
4. Rolleiflex - takes pictures in the format 6x6 cm. It has a fixed lens 75 mm - 1:3,5. This camera is about fifty years old.
5. Stereo Realist - takes two simultaneous photos 2,3x2,3 mm on 35mm film. The photos are then printed on paper in format 6x6 cm beside each other to give a stereo (3D) experience with a suitable viewer. This camera is also about fifty years old.
6. Casio EX-Z750 - digital 7,2 megapixel camera. We carry this camera each time we leave the house.
We earlier used positive film (for slides) but have now changed to use negative colour film. The film is developed by the photo shop without making prints.
We scan the film on an EPSON Perfection 4870 Photo flatbed scanner with a resolution of 2400 DPI and save the resulting file in TIFF format. This gives about seven mega-pixels for a 35mm photo (about 20MB file size) and 28 mega-pixels (80MB file size) for the Rolleiflex photos. (Our scanner allows higher resolution up to 4800 DPI which we use when creating very big prints.)
We use mainly Corel PaintShop Pro Photo to do any required adjustments.
For the Internet use, we scale down the photos to a width of 800 pixels so they will be shown in their entirety on most PC screens. Internet pictures are presented in JPG format.
Should you have any questions or suggestions, or if you would like a print of any of the photos, please send us an e-mail or call us.
