    Nice – great technique. I never thought of shooting a negative with a digital camera. Something to try.

      Thanks for the comment. Yes Bill, it is a nice technique. I stumbled on it when I started with scanning stuff (old slides from my father, etc.) After several different setups I settled for the light table (30$) and my DSLR plus Closeup filter (also 30$). Thus getting the ‘poor mens’ configuration which still gives quite good results. I have to mention that part of the fun is simply toying with all this stuff. I never had a Dark Room … but with these negatives and light table etc it feels a bit like the ol’ times:)
