Talking Heads UMass 1979 US Tour.

I was at UMass when the Talking Heads made one of their first US tours. UMass Amherst was a stop on the tour and I was a big fan. I was a DJ at WAMH and photographer for the yearbook and school newspaper. That let me get up close.

  1. I just got an Epson Perfection V850 Pro Photo Scanner in for evaluation. It's exciting because I have not seen these photos in a long time. The negative film slides into a holder that accepts three strips at a time. The V850 also has a second holder so you can fill it up while scanning the first batch.
  2. These are the settings I used:
  3. B&W Negative Film
    Image Type: Greyscale
    Destination: Other
    Reolution: 96/300/2400 dpi
    Target size: Original
    DIGITAL ICE Technology
  4. B&W Negative Film Scan 2400 dpi

  7. First scan at 96 dpi was a little rough.

  9. I boosted it to 300 dpi and it got better.

  11. 2400 was best. It makes a larger file and takes longer too.
