Yorkville in Colour

Technology sometimes isn't our friend. I use Vuescan scanning software and after the most recent update, my Epson V600 Photo started crashing. I even went back a release, no such luck. I wound up downloading the Epson scanning software for Mac OS and managed to get it configured, and it looks I'm using that going forward for the next little while because starting from default settings every time you fire up the scanner to digitize some negatives or slides, tedious.

Speaking of scanning my workflow, I scan my negatives into a TIFF file on an external hard drive and process in Adobe Lightroom, usually just cropping, dust removal and a bit of sharpening and export as a Jpeg for web use. If I'm printing black and white, and I'm 11x14 and smaller with paper, I'll do it old school in a darkroom, with colour and bigger prints, I farm it out to a print studio.

Yorkville is an interesting neighbourhood to photograph, the end result from early gentrification, I've nick named it the celebrity petting zoo around Toronto Film Festival season.
