Cowboy Up

This is me around 1979 (or so it says on the box I found ’em in), riding my horse named Prince:

I am going through a huge collection of old slides and negatives and trying to restore, catalog, and archive them. Some of them are quite old, and some are in pretty bad shape. I am using an Epson 4870 Photo scanner and making frequent use of it’s ability to handle large format negatives. Some of these old negatives are hand cut at up to 5″ x 7″, and the scanner handles these nicely. I’ve been doing what I can to quickly clean them up in Photoshop and some of them are coming out quite nicely.
