Shooting Negative Film photos
There are many ways to take negative film photos with your digital cameras without a film scanner! As an example, here is how we shot this pages examples.
We put a negative film on an acrylic resin milk-white (semi-transparent) plate with white light from the bottom, and took a picture directly above the plate.
Negative films are in the film holder. However, when you shoot negative films, they should include unexposed areas of the film. Alternatively, unexposed film image should be shot in the same shooting conditions as other images and unexposed areas should be specified on the thumbnail.
You can shoot beautifully with white light directly from the bottom. So, why not take this opportunity to take on the challenge of digitizing film photos? In that case, please use SILKYPIX’s Negative film inversion tool!
