Picture Madness!

Friday, June 26th, 2009

So the past couple weeks I took the time to digitize ALL of my old film-based photos from the late 80’s onward. Needless to say, this took a while.

Some of the photos (from 1997-1999 and some later) were Kodak Advantix film, which is these little cartridge things, so I had Walgreen’s process those. The rest was all typical negatives, mostly 35mm but some Instamatic 110. These I scanned myself with a flatbed scanner (Epson Perfection V500 Photo) with negative scanning support. After about a week and a half of scanning negatives in groups of 7 to 12, I had 1171 photos. This combined with the 449 photos from the Advantix film, gives me 1620 pictures from days of old. I’ve posted over a hundred of them to my Facebook page. It’s been a while since I’ve had so much fun with old friends, some of whom may not be my friends any longer. =)

I’ll see if I can post some up here, but I don’t really feel like duplicating my effort. I’m having far too much fun with all the comments and cross-posting over at Facebook.

Here’s a picture of me in 7th grade:
