Re: Taking slide rule pictures
How do you use the scanner? I mean how do you place the slide rule and how do you take care about the cursor? How did you make the scans of the slide rule ends? If you made them by leaving the scanner open, then there was quite a work to cut the slide rule free in photoshop or GIMP, wasn't it? Let's share some best practice....
...taking care about equippment (in my case to keep the bill low...) and using lenses only which are between 30ys and about some 70ys old, which I mainly bought as pupil and student yet, put me in the amateur league, though I take care about the light and especially the shadows!-)
The pictures of the flying fishes which I shared are not
"photoshoped" since in general I hate this work. One or two of
them are slightly rotated (usually I rotate the paper until it
fits but sometimes I do not see it by 100% on the camera screen),
otherwise they are only cut to size and scaled down to low
resolution. All detail photos are shot by hand without usage of a
tripod and I used a 35mm lens with low minimum distance for this
so that handling of the camera is simpler.
