Negative scanner & Old Film Rolls

I received a negative scanner recently as a present and dug into some film rolls, some old and some recent. It was the missing piece to continue working with film photography. I have analog cameras, and the film rolls are affordable priced, the development of film is affordable too. But photo development was the tricky bit and I used DIY methods of getting an idea of a film frame, to see if it was worth sending for a big print of it. A negative scanner makes this selection much easier, and  there’s seemingly endless film rolls to go through, to archive and maybe find some special photos. A film roll must be developed, a negative scanner is never a substitute for that, unless for blog posts or some smaller digital prints. Here’s a mix of some 35mm and 126mm photos. The vintage ones are taken by my parents.

Film rolls are great; you finish the film roll, time passes. Later you’re happy about discovering the rolls. Magic unfolds.

While driving around in the forest I discovered the Swedish folkrace and checked it out.
