[filmscanners] Re: Scanning negs vs. slides


As someone who works mainly with negatives rather than slides, have you
developed the ability to reverse negs in your brain? I find that I simply
cannot do this; I struggle sometimes to even tell what the image is, let
alone whether it is any good or not. Yet I once knew a photographic
technician who could just look at a neg and tell immediately whether it was
any good.

Does this come with practice and experience, or do you need brain
connections that I obviously do not have?

The major, major advantage of slide is that there's an immediate reference
right there, you can see what it should look like. For many people that's
so conclusive a USP that nothing else matters. For me, that is a
disadvantage!  I'm generally photographing where slide's limitations, its
intrinsic contrast and restricted dynamic range, are a pain, and whatever I
get on slide is far away from what was there and what I want.
