Step 10: Developing #2 - Cutting the film and scanning
Traditional films cut every 5 or 6 frames, and the leaders (black parts ) are cut off.
To scan our film we can take it to a photo developing place or scan it ourselves.
If you have a high resolution flat bed scanner you can simply use that.
The next method is using our digital cameras to take pictures of our film.
To do this we can create many different rigs to hold our film and scan it. I use a custom erector set contraption to hold mine, but a paper towel tube with 2 slits works just as well. Try to zoom in as far as you can on the negative and snap a nice clean, crisp photo. Using a nice flat white light behind the negative helps alot. A white computer screen works well.
