Would the point be how much Photoshopping you typically need to do as
it's probably a good idea that the scans be as right on as possible?
In a way scanning feels like the beginning of the photographic process...
The being out there with the camera in the first place getting the shot
hopefully with the right film, filter, focus, shutter speed and aperture
and aimed at the right place. The gathering of information.
Scanning can feel not for from that only your scanner sits there on the
table; not in your handy hands. Do they have handheld scanners? No I'd
think not it's best to use a tripod when ever possible. Although my desk
has more than three legs.
One leg to many if you ask me.
