Film To Digital, An Exercise in Creativity and Posterity

Break Dancing In Harlem

Break Dancing In Harlem

Going through my old negatives, I found a roll of some faves from a fantastic dancing event in Harlem, NYC. Although I’m a Lehigh Valley photographer, I do venture out to great cities and towns across the U.S. New York is one of the best photographic subjects for any photographer. Anyway, I scanned a few frames from that shoot and added a modern twist with photoshop. It turned out so great that I added to my new website.

The reason I’m posting this is to send another tickle to all photographers, and anyone out there really, to ‘remember’ the wealth of images from your old film/slides. Technology has grown enormously since most of the old film images were created. Once in a while, go through and scan a few, say 2 rolls a month, etc. Do this not only for creativity but also as an archival process. …and don’t forget your family and friends.


  1. Great idea! I’m doing my mother’s slides; and even though is taking quite a long time it will be worth. The old slides are deteriorating. It is our family history and needs to be saved.

  2. Very good report .I just stumbled upon your web site and sought to speak that I’ve especially enjoyed browsing your website posts.After all I will be subscribing to your rss feed in addition to I anticipate you compose yet again shortly!

    As a final note , permit me thank you for your patience with my English as (I’m sure you have become aware this at this moment ,), English is not my chief language thus I am using Google Translate to build out what to write down what I genuinely want to state.

  3. If you would e-mail me with a handful of options on just how you made your website look this excellent, I would be grateful.

    As a final point , allow me thank you for your understanding with my English as (I am positive you have figured this at this time ,), English is not my mother tongue thus I am utilizing Google Translate to build out what to jot down what I genuinely plan to tell.
