So the other day, I picked up this thing at B&H. Turns out, its got some pretty specific requirements - 100mm or so macro lens, 52 to 58mm step down ring, full frame camera. Luckily, I own all of that! So, I'm now able to actually do something with all my slides - without spending a fortune getting them scanned or sinking a lot of money into a dedicated slide scanner. My test shots made nice 5x7 prints - I cleaned the fullsize 4000x3000 files in PS, then downsampled to 1800x1200 and the results were great. Of course, your orginal slides have to be sharply focused and clean to get decent results - many of mine were not nearly as good as I thought they were, so it was a worthwhile exercise shooting them like this.... helped me weed out the real garbage!

Here's a few if you're interested....

My father graduating from Officer Candidate School. in 1974.

Old college portfolio slides... drawings 1, 2, 3, 4.

Random stuff... 1, 2, 3.

My first art show... 1979?
