Learn the ins and outs of G44’s Imacon 949 scanner: learn an in-depth practice of scanning film and adjusting them for later work in Photoshop. This workshop will deal with workflow using Flexcolor software and Flextight (Imacon) scanner, using raw scans (3F), post adjustments in color and exposure, and a brief Photoshop demo working with film scans as well as making digital contact sheets.
