In this tipster, I will share with you on how I scanned sprockets with my Canoscan 5600F. Hope everyone enjoys the fun of sprockets.
Before anything else, I would like to thank the lomographers for sharing their guidelines with me on how to scan the sprockets. Since there are other lomographers asking me about sprocket scanning, I will share what I know. Please refer back on my previous tipster on how to use digitaliza on your Canoscan 5600F. That will make it easier to get better result.
First, press preview and you will see as below.
Delete those unnecessary crops and use only one crop to cover all the areas.But, for sure, the picture is blown out and show as over-exposed. Reduce the crop, cover the areas without sprocket. The picture will look nicer now. Tick the manual expose, and set it as 100%. Clicks apply. Now, cover the sprocket area and the picture will looks in correct exposure.
Now click scan and save your picture. Sprocket scanning is no longer a headache job. Enjoy the fun of sprocket!
