Finishing & Scanning a (large) piece
I felt the need to tweak this piece a bit on my return from my recent trip to the South. Just a little bit though.
Then it was time to scan it! But it is 18″x24″, so this means 6 scans that need to be aligned & patched together digitally: painful. And no color correction on scanning since they all need to be scanned with the same settings. And then how to get the color & light correction close to the original… which seemed much brighter in photos taken on a bright sunny day!
Now in the dark rainy weather, this piece is dark & somber even with the bright lights in my studio. Do I adjust per my earlier photos & memory? Or for today?
